Does anyone know when the ink windows in the Aurora 88s changed colors? I have an 88 #994559 with an amber looking window, and another, #1149369 with reddish tint. I also note that the cap on the older model is slightly shorter than on the newer one. Does anyone have info on that. Also I just acquired an vintage 88 Nikargenta. Does this cap require any special treatment other than the usual care? Thanks for any light you can shed on these questions as I try to learn more than I've already gleaned from this forum about these great pens.

Aurora 88 windows always born yellow, ink and time discolored them up to amber or red, darkening depends by time of contact with ink

and color or features of ink, usually darker colours were more aggressive than lighter ones.

Thanks. As I recall from other  posts, you are the Aurora authority.
