    I was recently cleaning out my attic today and I found this microscope hidden away in a box. I don't know anything about it, as I have never seen anything like it before. I'm just curious as to what I have, and how much it's worth. It works perfectly fine, and uses light bulbs to magnify objects, or so it would seem.

    I need some extra money to pay some bills and would love to know more about this thing. I'm attaching a photo as well. I remember using it when I was younger, and spending hours looking at things, and to know it still works today is a relief.

    Doesn't look like any old microscope I've ever seen. However, if you could take a picture with a same color background, it might be easier to note finer detail.

    Next, do you have any Ebay experience? I would do some searching around and see what others might pay for the item and then maybe you or someone you know could post it on Ebay for sale.

    Just google the name of the thing and see what that name gives you there. Then google the name and ask for used prices for it.

    I remember my parents had a microscope with tiny little light bulbs inside it. I had forgotten all about that. It would be worth a lot of sentimental value.
