    Default FS: Vintage Aurora 88 (Broad Stub, Restored, Wet Writer, Piston Filler)

    For sale is a vintage Aurora 88 fp in gold and black with a 14k broad stub nib. I don't know if the nib is a factory stub or was ground to such by a nib worker. This classic piston filler is in excellent overall condition with only typical light/moderate wear from age and normal use. As seen in one of my pictures, the gold cap has some plating lost at the bottom. It also has a couple of very small dings or dimples. The pen was restored a few years ago with new piston seals. The nib writes quite wet and quite well upside down (though noticeably less wet). However, I have had some issue with skipping and hard starts; they haven't been truly terrible but enough to notice.

    $100 including shipping in the USA. I will accept PayPal or a check/money order. If you are interested, please send me a private message. Thank you.
