Aurora Gold-Filled Pen – Wet Noodle

Aurora Gold-Filled Pen – Wet Noodle

Here is a lovely vintage gold-filled vest-sized pen very similar in style to a Waterman 52V. There is no actual company hallmarks on the pen itself, but the nib does say “Aurora.” What I can tell you is that Aurora did start in 1919, that this pen has all the markings of a European styled model, and that therefore it could be an early Aurora. Regardless, it is a high quality pen with a high quality nib. The 18kt gold-filled overlay is in great condition with no dings or dents, and it only has some light scratching. The orange hard rubber under the overlay is visible under the cap and has very little fading to it. There is little to no brassing on the body, and the chasing still looks great. The 14kt. Aurora nib is a long and slender tined beauty that writes normally as a surprisingly smooth XXF. The flex is phenomenal. Wonderfully soft this nib easily swells to BBB (l.6mm) lines, and is also very responsive allowing for some great control. Whether you want a nice springy XXF writer or want something with soft, responsive flex, this pen is a great choice.
