You are invited to purchase a mini collection of four (4) Antique Brass Microscopes.  Included are the following microscopes:

Attached are composite images of each instrument that show an original Catalog illustration of the microscope model extracted from the respective manufacturer's catalogue of the day along with an image of the microscope itself in its present condition.   All four antique microscopes are in good display condition for an antique microscope collection, but due to their age they may have some evidence of scratches, patchy tarnish, etc. commersurate with their age.

Here is your opportunity to begin a collection of antique brass microscopes with a representative sample of period instruments from America, England and Austria.   Alternately, all of these instruments will also enhance the value of an existing collection.

Each of the microscopes will be carefully wrapped in a thick cocoon of large diameter Bubble Wrap to protect them from damage in shipping.  Shipping will be by FEDEX GROUND or FEDEX HOME DELIVERY in the USA or by USPS PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL for shipment outside of CONUS.   Shipping will be FREE inside CONUS if the buyer meets the full asking price for this collection.  If a lesser cost is negotiated, shipping charges for inside CONUS will be added at the actual cost to your destination.   In any case, overseas shipment will be at a fixed cost of $185.00 USD.

Additional information on each microscope model along with more images of each one are available upon request.
