Different 85~250 Zoom

The wood case is NK original complete with NK logo on front. Not all Nikon wood cases have plastic grips. My PF copy stand and my P copy kit both have leather handles made the same way.
This is the same version of the 8.5cm~25cm Nikkor Zoom that Brasczko shows in his book, but not the same lens. Braszko is incorrect in stating that it was for the Nikon Reflex Housing. There is not enough room at the back of the lens to fit a Nikon housing in. I believe it is designed to go on a TV production studio camera, but I have never seen a two inch lens mount. It may be a short mount to take an adapter to fit various makes of cameras.
Also note that this is a "Nikkor Telephoto Zoom," NOT an "Auto Nikkor Telephoto Zoom." So, it never started life as a version for the Nikon F. Serial number is not part of the Type 1 series for the F either. WES
