Oldest known Nikon goes under the hammer

If you are an avid collector of old school stuff as well as antiques, or just have a great love for classic devices in the world of photography, then you would do well to mark May 28th on your calendar. After all, this is where the WestLicht Photographica Auction will feature the Nikon I (No. 60924) that you see above, all the way from 1948. It seems that the auction will start from 140,000 to 160,000 Euros (that’s $228,800 in our currency), and being the third camera ever made by Nikon, it obviously holds a whole lot of history for camera buffs. Apart from that, this camera still carries the original Nikkor 2/5cm lens – so if you want to carry $228,800 worth of last century’s gear around your neck, go ahead and prepare your financial arsenal to drop the winning bid.
