Picked-up a nice condition Lzos made WM-1 schools microscope for $10. Date stamp inside the instruction manual
shows that it passed inspection at the Lzos factory in the year 1975.Even the original slides are still wrapped in their original packing paper.

Interesting to compare it with my Victorian period John Browning scope. The browning made from Brass, Gun-metal and Mahogany wood.
Move forward some 80-90 years and the Lzos,Die-cast metal, plastic and Baltic Birch plywood.

Both scopes give very nice eyepiece views.
Here is a pic of the storage boxes.
