Vintage Carl Zeiss Jena Stativ VA for sale (from around 1913)

It's on eBay until tomorrow. If it does not sell I will consider any serious offer from any of you

Also, if you're not buying... Help me out here. I am thinking of splitting it up. There is a Reichert 8x Eyepiece and a pretty new Zeiss objective on it. There is also what seems to be a very good 3x long objective lens with the kit. These parts are not original and could be sold separately. I would then sell the stand with the box and one original Zeiss objective. All parts that is original together. Good idea or bad idea?

Shipping is probably around 40 USD for Europe, and 70 USD for rest of the world.

To find the correct market price for it, I consider going "yolo" on it and list it for $1 USD start price.

I really like the microscope but I have to tell myself over and over again:

"I do not collect old microscopes"
"I do not collect old microscopes".

I collect old telescopes. Sometimes, I get confused :-)

I don't know if you read the entire description... but here is historical information about the microscope. Quite a fascinating story :)

I'm not confused...I DO collect old microscopes and maybe interested if it doesn't sell and we can come to a price.
