The case was first shown in the NHS Journal issue #30, December 1990. Robert Rotoloni photographed the case with a Nikon leather case inside. Clearly the case was designed not for use while photographing, since there would be a Nikon logo in front of the lens, but simply to protect a leather case. A truly "never ready" case. The one auctioned on ebay has a classic Nikon box, finally answering the question posed in 1990 about its origin.
