Hi,

are you making a Museum, too?
We have a K1 in the collection, unfortunately it is a single item and I cannot trade it.
Anyway, we have dozen of double items, so we can trade some readers with other not presents.

About the K1, if you receive offers, please note that the Museum is still looking for a K1 and K2 boxes to complete the readers.

Today the Museum counts 52 different readers, and day by day the collection increases

I saw one here in Peru, but they want (if I remember correctly) 300 soles, which is slightly over $100.

This is NOT a good bargain at all, but one reason for higher prices (for older as well as current merchandize) is that Peru has a 19% VAT added to goods imported. Plus, merchants need to realize a profit.

However, let me state again that this is a horrible price to pay for an older piece of technology.

Your best bet is probably ebay.

I'm trying that but most of the 1st Generation sellers will only ship within the US - presumably don't think there could be a market elsewhere since it was only sold in the States.

Most people dont want to deal with international shipping. It is a pain in the rear since you actually have to go to the post office.
Not to mention the oversea scammers have put a bad taste in people's mouth and it makes people forget that 99.999% of our brothers on the other side of the pond are just like us... with accents

Try to look for some kind of shipping service. For italy exists http://consegnato.com
This service offers to you a shipping address in USA, then it deliveries to Italy with an acceptable additional delivery cost.

I suggest to you to contact Consegnato and ask for the same service to UK
