Looks like an old Calrad Japanese mic from the 60's.

unscrew the top and see what kind of diaphragm it has

yeah I'm quite the photographer I might put together an excibit some day, "mikes and fruit" I'll have to pitch it at the Met and see what they say

it's not japanese that much I know, It's marked "made in Germany" so I presume it's german.

I have a problem taking the top of(it seems to have been crushed a little at some point) it's extremely tight and I have'nt had any luck unscrewing it.

I'll be putting together a cable for the mic tomorrow so I'll see soon enough if it's a dynamic or condenser mic.

Anyway thanks a lot for the help guys, I hope someone wanders in here that knows the make and model.
