Service/Restoration

No restoration required. We have however, fully disassembled and ultrasonically cleaned all parts to remove traces of old ink. Nib and feed removed from section, nib polished and  correctly re-aligned with feed. Front section gold plated ring replaced. Pen barrel and cap delicately hand polished. Reassembled, write tested and finally flushed with clean water.

General Condition
 
Pen barrel and cap are free from noticeable scratches, with no dents, cracks or hairlines. There are no personalisation. Gold plating to clip and trim is excellent. Resin has high gloss sheen. Cap to barrel 'click-on' push fit is positive, with no gold abrasion to gold section lock ring.  We would classify this pen as being in excellent condition. Pen is supplied in original Aurora presentation box and operating instructions.
