Found two Nikonos V's on ebay for a killer price (50$ each) Had to splurge and snag them both. 2049528 was listed as: "as-is" but looked to be in great shape so I risked it. It arrived missing its battery plug and flash port plug. Aside from those pieces it was in excellent shape. I spent about 45 minutes replacing all the internal & external O-rings and rushed to the beach to give it a go.
