I was wondering if you knew how the serial numbers went? i have a Nikon F photomic T serial number 7201226, i thought it was a 65 just from guessing from looking at the pictures, but i cant tell. Also im not familiar with cameras. I received this from my grandma, it used to be my grandpa's in the day. Just trying to figure it out so i can sell it. College is expensive!

here a link to my craigslist posting.

Thank you all for your help!

Hi Ron:

I would try the camera repair services directory at - hopefully you'll be able to find someone close to home that you can talk to about it.

Thanks Rick, just what I wanted to know. I am familiar with EBay dealings and will give it a go but I think I found a potential buyer in Madrid. I do lots of international shipping so happy to send it. Very interesting site here!

Hi Gaines:

That sounds like a very nice kit. The best place to go for a decent price is probably eBay. The largest number of potential buyers are there, and the amount that eBay takes as a commission is much less than you will find in other places. It will be difficult to get a good idea of the market value of this kit, as the value of a Nikon F is tremendously variable based on its manufacture date, condition, originality of accessories, and a number of other factors including which particular individual people happen to see your listing. You can, though, search for similar items on eBay and click the "completed auctions" box to see actual prices returned recently. This is the best and most real price guide that I know of.

When you list the kit, emphasize its serial number and provenance, you do appear to have a fully matched kit with the 58mm lens, selenium meter and 64xxx serial number and this should increase its value. And include those high quality photos, people interested in this kit will be interested in fine details of its condition.

I have a Nikon F bought in Japan in the 60's and I am the second owner. It is marked Nikon F & Nippon Kogaru, Tokyo. the serial number is # 6456399. Mounted on it is a Nikon photocell light meter, held in place by spring levers and pinned to the shutter speed knob. It is # 992679. Mounted on the camera is a Nikkor S Auto 1 : 1.4 f= 5.8 cm lens with a neutral filter that is unmarked but appears to match the camera. The lens is # 163895 With it is a Nikkor P Auto 1:2.5 F= 10.5 lens in it's Nikon black and clear plastic holder with an original hood included. All was bought together by a US sailor and all is working and in good condition with a small dent in the exposure meter but it works fine. I have had it on a shelf for 15 years and would like to get fair market value for it . Where is a good place to post it? Good detailed pictures available. Would only sell as a unit or trade for or toward a Nikon 85mm F 1.8 D. I hope I am not out of order posting here.If so please delete. I would appreciate a rough value fair to a buyer.

Hello, I'm looking for a Nikkor 5.8cm (58mm) f/1.4 lens for the Nikon F. This was the first f/1.4 for the Nikon F. I have the early 5cm (50mm) f/2 lens but need the 5.8cm f/1.4 to round off my very early Nikon Photomic with the external CDS cell.

Regards Tony Australia
