So this is a Lunt B1800. It is incomplete in that you will get exactly what you see in the 1st photo:  diagonal body with its rectangular mirror and the (2) dust caps. The diagonal and mirror are all original. The bolts and their locations on all of the diagonal body are original and not modifications.

What is missing are the (2) M42 attachment barrels (not hard to find), and the inner filters. I am NOT an expert on Lunt products, but I am pretty sure these diagonals came with inner insert, hydrogen alpha-filtering glass. 
I got the diagonal this way in a deal package for some eyepieces I had to get my hands on.

The "1800" stands for the visual use model: this was made to serve telescopes with focal lengths up to 1800mm.

The diagonal body is in excellent condition on all of the white paint and in mint condition on the anodized aluminum male collars. The circular model logos are in glossy, very excellent condition. The underside orange access panel is in great condition with a paint chip down to the metal. The black smudge across from it is not a scratch and was completely removed after I took the photos.

The mirror is in perfect condition physically in that it has no deep scratches, no chips, no cracks. The coatings are in solid excellent, very clean condition with no pitting issues to report. It does not need to be cleaned for a long time.

Very solidly built of large amounts of aluminum and tips the scale right at 8.7 ounces.

All nations welcome to bid.
