Nikon FA Gold - Camera Gran Prix 1984
This is the second Gold Nikon (first being the Gold FM) produced, however, it is the first Gold Nikon available to the general public to commemorating their winning of the European Camera of the Year Award in 1984.  All metal parts were 24 carat gold plated and covered with Royal Lizard skin.  Only 2000 pieces were available world wide.  The camera was delivered with a wooden casket complete with a matching 50mm/f1.4 24 carat gold plated Nikkor Lens.
The camera is housed in a wooden presentation box with an outer golden in color carton box, complete with warranty card, a pamphlet on FA Gold, the golden FA instructions Manual, Lens Manual, Nikon Catalog, CR 1/3N Battery, Tripot rubber, Speical Cleaning Cloth, Red Display Pad and a Leather Bag/Cloth where the FA Gold was wrapped with when delivered!
Following are some comparision with the standard Chrome and Black FA Cameras, as you can see, other than the gold plating, it is essentially the same camera!
