This old Civil Defense Geiger counter is from the 1950's-'60's era - the type used in shelters. It is in excellent condition and works; however, as with most old Cold War era CD counters, it is meant to pick up near lethal to lethal doses of radiation. In other words, if you are planning to detect minerals, or check old glass, etc., it is probably not sensitive enough - more of a conversation piece. Works with a D size battery. This Geiger counter is from Oak Ridge - 'home' of the A-bomb. Thanks for looking.
