Type  Fountain pen

Product Name  Bicentennial of the Italian Flag Limited Edition #1022/1997. There were three pens in this edition, one in each of the three Italian flag colors. This listing is for the red pen.

Manufacturer and Year  Aurora, Italy -- 1997

Length  5-1/8"

Filling System  It is a piston filler. There's a window through which you can view the ink.

Color  Red pen representing the right section of the Italian flag. It has the original Italian flag in cap piece and gold plated trim. There are small flags on the cap band.

Nib  18k Fine nib. The feed is labeled, "F." The nib is smooth and springy for a soft writing experience, and you can get a little bit of line variation with this pen. SEe writing sample.

Condition  Near Mint condition with nearly pristine trim and a lack of handwear.  The trim has some marks on it but no plating wear. The imprints are very crisp. No ink residue in the viewing window. No dents or dings or cracks. Gorgeous pen. 

Aurora pens feature a "one more page" hidden reservoir device - the piston has a small compartment that fills with ink. When the pen stops writing, twist the piston knob anticlockwise as far as it will go. This will push the piston forward, delivering the reservoir's ink into the feed, and allowing you to write one more page.

We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.
