The stand may includes a separable base that is used for transmitted light applications. The mirror fork is present, but the mirror is missing. Also lacking is the glass stage plate and the chrome-plated ledge on the front of the stage that would have held it in place. This would be a very easy thing to fabricate. When transmitted light is not needed, the bottom assembly may be removed after releasing a knurled screw on the back of the focus drive housing. In addition to the rack & pinion focus drive there is a second dovetail which may be extended for very large samples - the handle for securing it is visible beneath the microscope arm.
The microscope is in excellent condition. All parts have been relubricated, and the alignment has been checked and found to be excellent. Contrast is very good and glass is immaculate.
