The item photographed may not be the actual model but is used for illustrative purposes only.

RARE EARLY COLLECTORS’ ITEM NIKON F WITH PHOTOMIC NO II FINDER. The “Red Dot” version numbered 6595493. All Nikon F cameras of the 66xxxxx number block (and some of the 65xxxxx block)have a red dot in front of the camera of the serial number. This engraved dot indicates a production enhancement of the viewfinder allowing the mounting of the Photomic T and Tn (and the later FTn with modification of the name plate) finders. Our research suggests that there were just 2800 “Red Dot” 66xxxxx serial numbered Nikon F camera manufactured.

Please note that the following important points when you see our grading description. When applied to lenses it means that the optics are in perfect condition. What we are describing is the cosmetic condition of the lens barrel. When it applies to cameras, motor drives, speedlights etc. the understanding is that the item is in perfect working order and the description would mean the exterior appearance. In other words we are judging cosmetic appearance.
