My old Nikon FTn accompanied me in Vietnam and Cambodia in '69 & '70. I was a combat photographer in the infantry:

I think it took this photo of me standing on a tank just inside Cambodia in the spring of 1970:

Looks like it was processed in a mud puddle. Might have been.😀

Picked up this new-in-box FE2 yesterday and put a 35/2.8 on it. Never had a roll...original sale date May, 1986. Lens mount appears to never have had a lens mounted, either, no marks and it was a pretty snug fit. The mirror foam was a bit crumbly so I replaced it, door seals look reasonably ok, will shoot a test roll to confirm.

Nice - always wanted one. BTW is that lens auto or manual aperture?
It's an auto lens and the camera has auto aperture function, but no DOF preview. It hasn't got an auto-return mirror either, but the 1963 model had. But that's ok, the less that can go wrong, the better. I will probably get a prism finder for it, but I can see that it will cost me twice the amount I paid for camera and lens.
