    Default FS: Aurora Optima Blue LE with flex nib

    Hello everyone!

    I have for sale an Aurora Optima Blue Limited Edition with a fine flex nib (with vintage-style long tines). The pen has been lovingly used, if only a few times, and I wish I could keep it, but with everything going on right now, I simply need to afford other things. The LE number is 092/330. The 14k nib is quite smooth and flexes moderately while still being fully controllable. The piston actuates very smoothly as well and I haven't had any problems at all with the pen or nib - there's a good tactile feel when writing with it. The only thing to note is that there is a small, thin scratch on the cap of the pen (detailed in photos - please do keep in mind I did use a macro lens to capture it), but it's hardly noticeable unless under direct light or felt with a fingernail. The trim is rhodium and compliments the pen's navy blue resin favourably. It's a handsome pen for sure. The pen is full of ink in the photos but will be cleaned and safely packed when shipped.

    I am asking $300 including shipping in the U.S., SOLD! or plus shipping outside of the US. The pen comes in its original medium-sized box with all its papers. The MSRP on this pen originally was $650, but considering its used condition, I've adjusted the price to what I think is fair.

    If you have any questions or want more photos, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you for your consideration!

    Bumpity bump! If you have any interest or offers, just ask! I don't prefer it in this case, but I might consider a trade as well.

    (Almost) mid-week bump! I hope everyone is managing all right during this time.

    I wish I could! I just bought a blue Auroloid (sp?). Your pen is just about perfect in aesthetics. Good luck with the sale!

    Oof. This is the perfect color!! Unfortunately Im terrible with flex nibs. Any chance youve got a different nib in another Aurora youd swap in?

    Three old hunters were walking through the woods one day. One looks over and says, "Windy, isn't it?" Another says, "I thought it was Thursday." The third says, "Me too! The heck with hunting, let's go grab a beer!"

    If you have any interest in the factory stub Id swap the nibs with you. Stub is a little too wide for what I want it for.

    Hi! Unfortunately I don't, but it seems that you might be able to work something out with someone else once you have it.

    Bump! The pen is still available, yes! If people want to work out a nib swap, that's fine by me. Feel free to discuss it here or via PM, I don't mind (I don't believe that would violate TOS).
