Nikon F finder ID

Hi all, can someone please help ID this Nikon F finder? I don't have any prior experience with Nikon's so I'm a bit stumped...

The seller has it listed as a Photomic FTN, which I'm pretty sure is incorrect. Is it a Photomic T?

Thanks in advance!

Nick

Looks like a Photomic T. Maybe a late version just before the Tn because of the diopter ready eyepiece.

Anything in particular to look out for with these?

If the battery chamber is clean and there are no signs of the prisim desilvering, get a battery adapter and it should be good. It's still a fifty year old meter.
