I still have my 1st Nikon, the 'F' with the FTN Photomic Finder, 50mm 2.0 and case for $277. new. I got it in late 1969 after my Kowa Set advance gears failed for the 3rd time, I was a Junior in high school. I upgraded to the Honeywell 800 Strobonar with 510 volt battery pack for $120. at the same time as the 'F' and added the 50mm 1.4 the next year. Also in the photo is my 24mm 2.8 and 55mm 3.5 Macro.

Photo shot with my Df and 50mm 1.4.

Nice condition.  The battery in my Honeywell 880 strobe kind of exploded sometime in the last 30 years and left crud all over the case and flash.  I didn't bother cleaning it.
