Nikon I on ebay- gone

Item # 172280120208
So who was the person who convinced this seller to end early? He undoubtedly got a bargain. The filters alone have to be as scarce as any Nikon RF item ever sold.

Rotoloni says Nikon I production stopped in August, 1949, at #609758 or #609759.

Yes, lots of greenies. Very lots.

There are ways around that:

The 5cm f3.5 lens is really really rare in Nikon mount, may be 100 were ever made.

What was even rarer than the 5cm f3.5 Nikkor was the original lens cap, sun shade and filters. Never seen the filters for the f3.5 lens before.
Case wasn't too bad either. WES

The typed out instructions are even rarer.

Apparently they ran out of the Nikon One Instruction books.
