This pen was not working because its tines are flush with the tip of the feed. A curious state for a pen to be in, it almost seems like the owner was in the middle of replacing the nib but changed his/her mind? Who knows.
So I cleaned the pen, took the nib and feed out and made sure that the nib is okay:
The nib is the star here, an older version of Aurora nib that is different both in look and construction with what's available to buy new out there today. The nib is 14K, thinner design just like a vintage nib would be. And as the result, it's springy, almost flexible enough to compare with a nice vintage semiflex.
Piston is also good and nice, cosmetic-wise this pen is also ace.
Rain has accompanied us here in DFW area for two weeks now. Hence the sketch
