While this auction is not actually on Ebay (its being sold by the Austrian auction house, WestLicht), we couldn't resist including it in this week's Ebay Watch.
According to the listing, this is the oldest surviving Nikon is existence. Nikon began producing the Nikon I camera, its very first, in March of 1948. This camera was made in April of 1948 and was the companies third unit ever produced. It sports the serial number 60922 (why the third camera Nikon ever produced would have such a high serial number is beyond us).
The camera also comes with a matching Nikkor 2/5cm lens, serial number 70811. Now, before you get too giddy about this one of a kind Nikon, do know that the auction starts at the equivalent of of $101,059 and is expected to fetch between $202,118 and $230,992. The auction is set to take place on May 28th in Vienna.
