I got this with some other items some time ago and am not familiar with this. It is definitely an STI focuser screen for a 35mm format camera, but whether it is for a Pentax, Canon, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus....that I can't tell you. Take a good look at the fin-shaped quick release tab on the side; that could be your clue.

This unit is solid aluminum and bronze in construction and reads "STI Calibration" on the top face. If you looks very closely at the retaining cell for the focusing screen and glass, the inscription reads "HEYCO SB-750-8"

Total weight of this unit is 4 ounces.

Cosmetics are excellent, but not very excellent. Gentle signs of use at worst. All threads and the bayonet flanges are perfect. 
The focusing screen is intact and the glass clear, though there is a darker tint-like blob that runs around part of the perimeter. With the eye placed up to the glass you won't notice it. It may be trapped water or even air? I'm not willing to remove the retainer and try to clean it; you may not even need to do that. But I'll leave it to the next owner to decide.

This will come with its original dust cap.

And that's it.

All nations welcome to bid.
