May 30, 2012 at the prestigious Christie's auction in Hong Kong silver fountain pen Ancora Neptune with a rare number "88.88" was sold for 25,000 HK (about 3300 US dollars).

In eastern countries, the number "8" is considered lucky because it sounds as well as the word "prosperity".

Thereby the combination of numbers "88.88" becomes even more attractive. Ancora Neptune Pens Collection for the first time was introduced in 2010 and currently almost all pens are in private collections.

Very beautiful, solid and can be posted and become a very large pen. The 18K M nib is with some good flex and nice flow of ink. The nib is not as smooth as Visconti and Montegrappa pens but provide more feedback to me, just like writing with 4B pencil. The pen can house a Bock 250 nib assembly without a problem. I shall return for more of the Ancora pens, stunning!
