In Topic: NEW IN BOX AURORA 88 FINE NIB

23 April 2016 - 04:55 AM

To be exact, it's an 88P model, the last iteration of the vintage 88 family. The cap shape is characteristic of this model.

Today I have found only two pens. An Omas Extra Lucens anellata and an aerometric Parker 51 (yet another black one, with rolled gold, five converging lines cap).

 

The Omas is a very nice find and cheap to boot! The 51 came with it and is in fair condition, but has a fossilized sac filled with red ink. It's the first time that I have found an aerometric 51 with an unusable sac. Luckily, PVC replacement are available.

This week it's the turn of a lever fill rolled gold Columbus Extra - a lady size pen - with a very nice, very flexible nib. I have also bought another Pelikan 120. For 5 euros (as much as last week) I could not say no!

This week I have found a beautiful Aurora Selene - a "Lady" model - a rolled gold Zenith Extra and a lowly Pelikan 120.
