Help me identify this vintage Nikon?

#1 Post by vintagecollector » Tue Feb 04, 2020 2:46 pm

Hi all - I found this (I think vintage?) Nikon microscope and I was hoping someone could help me identify any information about the model, name, year produced, etc. Looks to be in very good condition except for a missing light bulb, so I’m trying to find information about the model so I can 1) order a new appropriately sized bulb and 2) list it for sale with accurate details. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Just joined this sub, I am (clearly) not an expert on microscopes.

Looks like the CL model. I think this sold in the early 1970s, and was a basic student model.
