Dating A Vintage Aurora 88



Recommended Posts

Does the serial number on the section of the Aurora 88 offer a clue as to its date of manufacture?

 

I have one with number: 1112742

 

The other (an 88P) is 3023327

 

Thanks,

Sure it does. A quite trustable source says: "The 88 turned 750.000 pieces sold in early 1952 and 1.000.000 at the end of the year. In 1953 a new model, called 88K, was launched on the market. "

 

So probably yours was made at the beginning of the 53.

The 88P is a late model. I believe the higher serial numbers on the Ps are about the 3,8 million mark.

 

Ciao,
