A beautiful example of a mid 1950s 35mm rangefinder camera – made by Nicca Camera Company, Ltd.
Mated with a sharp Nippon Kogaku Nikkor f/ 2, 5cm lens.
Main shutter speeds of 1/25 to 1/500th of a second.
Added bonus on this Nicca – marked <E.P> for exempt purchase. Normally marked for purchases made at military facilities and duty free shops.
Nicca cameras were considered to be well made cameras during the 1950s. This example is at least 62 years old and the fit and finish is almost flawless. Nicca was acquired by Yashica in 1958 and the merger of the two companies helped Yashica to design and release their first 35mm single lens reflex camera in 1960 – the Yashica Pentamatic.
