This the modern version of the L-86 Auto-Lumi, a selenium meter they made for a long while. This was their bottom-tier, no-nonsense, no-frills-but-gets-the-job-done meter. The big difference is that this one has a CdS cell and takes a modern battery.

Makes a very nice meter for a simple camera like an Argus C-3, or a backup for a modern camera.
