The geiger counter device itself is in great shape, showing some very minor wear on the front panel and some accumulation of dust from the years. To prevent any damage to the unit, I did not attempt to clean it in any way. I'm unable to confirm if the unit is still operational, since I assume the batteries are long out of production. A quick look at the inside of the unit shows that the interal workings appear to be pristine and complete, however the bidder should keep in mind that I do not know much about geiger counters. Google searches show that people seem to be interested in the Victoreen tubes in these units and their current condition, and this one appears to be unbroken. I am also unfamiliar with these tubes, and cannot say with any certaintly whether it is undamaged or of any use to someone today.
