see http://www.ebay.com/itm/322170928099

Only the earliest Nikon F's - maybe 100 or so - had cloth shutter curtains

Not the best condition, and that is the wrong lens for it.

Cool. And I'll bet it still works or could be made to. Would it have come with a 50mm f2.0 or the 5.8cm f1.4? Joe

When this camera was produced, there were no 1.4s yet available, it should have come with a 2.0
But the 2.0 should be "Tick Mark" version, or an early production example.

I expected it to go a lot higher than that. Still 12 hours left. Interested to see what it finally sells for.

From a total Nikon ignoramous - what is the relevance of the underside of the wind lever?

Nikon used various designs for its wind levers for the Nikon F. The earliest design was a solid lever that was then drilled out underneath to make the end hollow. Only the earliest Fs had this lever. Nikon then went with a stamped lever similar to the Nikon RF cameras. Other variations followed. Check Koch's book for the exact information. WES

There were a multitude of changes in the design and manufacture of the Nikon F during it's 15-year run. These are sometimes used to determine the authenticity and integrity of a body, as many parts were interchangeable.

Richard de Stoutz's site gives a comprehensive listing and examples of all these differences, as do Uli Koch's books. Here is an example of all the different wind levers http://www.destoutz.ch/typ_wind-levers.html .
