Rated 1 out of 5 by from brand new "100% working order" Really, how many people are going to have a radiation source to test this with? But wait! It has a test function! All that does is shunt the ion tube to test the batteries and circuit continuity. After 5 decades of storage and then bouncing around in a shipping carton, the chances of the resin sealed ion tube and electrometer tube arriving intact are near zero. Collectable? OK, just about anything is collectable. I had a rock collection when I was a kid, and if you have a rain barrel, you can even collect water, but I would by no means depend on one of these ancient survey meters to "detect radiation".

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cdv 715 This is a CDV715 Civil defense geiger counter. It is a HIGH LEVEL GEIGER COUNTER that is only used for very, very high level radiation detection. It cannot be used for household reasons and also not used for other minor detections. If you want a cool item to test and demonstrate with or collect I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brand new, never used I expected this to look "older". IDK why. Anyway, this thing is brand-spanking new! Unfortunately, it did not come with any instruction book on how to use it. So please understand that I have not used it yet, so this review may not be very useful. I will search online to see if I can find some sort of instruction manual or at least some instructions on how to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this as a Halloween prop, but it's still in fine working order. Just know that it's not a Geiger counter. It reads in Rads per hour. Geiger counters read in micro-rads per hour.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Again NO instruction manual was included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It actually works and is easy to use. Just point and click. Now I can scare the crap out of everyone at the market by scanning the fresh fish before I buy it! Of course I'd be wearing my surplus biohazard suit to add to the effect. Oh, today isn't Halloween? Sorry!
