This particular camera have a 8/10 cosmetic condition, both front and back. None of the rubber shows sign of age or stickiness. Even though the LCD screen is getting a yellowish hue, it is still working perfectly fine and all readouts are clear. Comes with the original vintage Nikon strap.

All functions and features are tested; shutter speed fires accurately at high and low speed; flash fires as it should.
