Fisheye 10.5 f2.8 selling tips needed (from EU residents)

Hi guys,

If you live in the EU and are familiar with selling lenses i would appreciate some tips.

I am currently selling my Nikon fisheye in Germany where I currently live, I purchased the lens in the US and when moved to Germany i lost the original box together with the bill... well, in the EU (Germany at least) no one will even look at this lens because people would be vera suspicious of a lens sold in Germany with no box not bill from a guy who doesn't speak the German

I've put the lens at the lowest price possible in ebay (with the help of a German colleague) and as soon as I say I bought it in the US no one contacts me again.

Do you know if there is any way (using perhaps the serial number) that I can proof this is not reported stolen or that it has never been taken for repair??, I've looked everywhere and found nothing... and i went to a shop who take used lenses and they offered me 200 Euros, thats pretty hard...

N e way... THANKS in advance for any tips...
