I'm after your opinion on the authenticity of a ballpoint I purchased yesterday.
The pen was advertised as an Aurora Ipsilon Black Resin with Sterling Silver cap, and that seems to be what I received. I bought from what appeared to be a reputable seller (99.8% positive feedback from over 2000 sales), and I paid a reasonable price - not a "too good to be true" one. Also the pen feels like a quality one (appreciate this is subjective), the only thing is when I look at other images of the same pen they seem to have the "Aurora" markings on the middle bands in black whilst on mine they are silver. I know some models change slightly over time so thought (hoped?) this might be the case here.
I've attached images of my pen below and I'd really appreciate your thoughts.
I have the opportunity to return within14 days, and I know some of you might say if I like the pen keep it regardless but it just rubs me the wrong way to think that I've paid for something not genuine, even if I ultimately like what I've received.
