SOLD, thanks!
The Aurora 88 model line heralded the reawakening of the Italian fountain pen industry after WWII, its design inspired by the Parker 51 in so many pockets of American soldiers in Italy for the reconstruction of Europe. However much its gold cap over a black barrel, hood, and partially hooded nib looked like those of the 51, under the surface was a typical Italian piston mechanism and workmanship. The 88 also led to Aurora’s next generations of pens, in numerous models, among them the 98 family of the 1960s. This pen, in steel with chrome plating, is a cartridge filler, introduced as a less expensive option. While not a true 98 (hence the quotes in iits title), it is much more affordable and less complicated, and carries the 98's wonderful, expressive nib, which writes a wet medium line with a bit of flex. This pen has been recently restored by the manufacturer and comes with an Aurora cartridge and in the Aurora service case.
