Please read full description and the important note at the end before you place your order. Item description: genuine made in italy vintage aurora 98 (i think) fountain pen in its original gift box. Both cap and barrel made of solid silver 925.The pen has rolled gold finish and stamped with the italian "5to" hallmark, a symbol of ancient goldsmiths and guarantee of the purity of the metals. It's a rare aurora 98 fountain pen. The pen is in good condition with signs of age and use commensurate with its age. It's a cartridge / ink converter fountain pen. Aurora ink cartridge / converters are easily available at retailers. Also, parker converters are generally compatible with aurora. I'll see if an alternate converter fits that can be included. The 14k solid gold nib is a great writer with excellent ink flow.
