Nikkor & Nikomat Kit - 35mm f2, 50mm f1.4 + hood, Nikomat FTN, +!
This is a great Nikon kit that comes with some choice pieces. I'm breaking the whole lot up into a couple different 'packages', which will be listed in posts to follow.
There is one thing that I'm looking to trade for; a Canon FD 35mm f/2 - concave front element, thorium, old FD mount, S.S.S., chrome-nose would be fine.. valued in my eyes at $160-190.
Package 1 - Nikkor-O AUTO 35mm f/2, no.721093
This lens is in fabulous shape; the glass is about as good as it can be. Front and rear Nikon caps, Nikkor 52mm "L39" filter. Wow.
Asking $145, shipped.
Package 2 - Nikkor-S AUTO 50mm f/1.4, no. 590739
Again, very good condition. Glass is fantastic and very clean overall. Front Nikon cap, generic rear. Also, comes with a metal 50/1.4 F Nikkor lens hood and a Nikkor Polar filter in a leather case (somewhat scratched). This hood is the best hood I've ever used; it attaches very surely, is sturdy metal and these mounting tabs on both hood & lens caps feel very sure & springy. They don't make 'em like they used to...
Asking $100, shipped.
Package 3 - Nikomat FTN with vintage leather Nikon case
Camera is in good shape and comes with the optional flash-shoe attachment & very cherry leather ever-ready "skin" (for lack of a better term). Shutter sounds very good at all speeds except slow, which are a little long. 1 second sounds like 1.5, and so forth. Might get better with exercise and is usable as is; I suspect high speeds are just fine. Film chamber is very clean, though foam could stand to be replaced. Mirror and viewfinder are very clean, clear and dust free. Camera has always had a lens on it though I don't have a body-cap now. Will be packed safely and dust freely.
Electronics have not been checked, though the film chamber is clean after dusting out some battery "cake", zero corrosion. Anyone's guess, I don't have a good battery to check it with.
Case is very groovy with a San Francisco customs sticker that looks straight out of 1966. I'm almost certain this camera was bought in Japan, probably by someone in the service maybe??
$33 + $12 shipping.
Package 4 - Nikon F Teleconverters - 3x & 2x
SUN AUTO Tele-UP 3x Model-N - 1 cap
AUTO TELEPLUS 2X (Kenko I believe) - 2 caps
Fine condition, $10 shipped.
Package 5 - Metz Mecablitz 163
Haven't tested it; probably not a very practical flash, kind of a relic. Comes with charger, which appears to be a European plug, and so it includes an AC adapter.
$5.00 and it's in your mailbox.

The filter's not in great shape, but it's done it's job admirably; the lens glass is pristine. Aperture is perfect. Nikon front and rear caps.

Nikkor-S Auto 1:1.4 f=50mm Nippon Kogaku Japan No. 590739
Excellent shape; clean as an operating room. Aperture is perfect also. Nikkor front cap, generic rear.
I'll go so far as to call the hood mint.
Polar filter & leather case is cool, a bit scratched.
Asking $100 shipped.
