For sale is a vintage Aurora 88P with a 14k gold Medium nib with no flex. The 88P was the third generation of the 88 and was manufactured from 1958 to 1964. This pen was probably made around 1962-63 based on itsí serial number of 3162251 and that the 88P sold 3.8 million units. This particular 88P has a slight discrepancy between the number on the section and whatís printed on the Warranty Certificate which reads 3162261. My only explanation for this is that the ď5″ on the section looks very similar to a ď6″ and was misprinted on the warranty.

The hood, barrel, and piston knob are all made from celluloid. The ink window is crystal clear and by far the clearest Iíve ever seen on any 88. The piston is the original unit and in great working order. Iím not sure this pen has ever been inked. Of course I canít say with 100% accuracy that it hasnít been inked, but there was no evidence of ink when I flushed it with water, thereís no ink in the threads of the barrel where the section attaches, and the inside of the cap is as clean as a brand new pen.

The cap is in mint condition. Thereís not a mark on it. Even the papers are crisp and free of any creases, folds, or tears. This is the nicest example of an Aurora 88P Iíve ever seen and as close to new old stock as youíll probably be able to get. $330
