PACKAGE INCLUDING-- Victoreen CDV-715 1B gamma Detector (not really a Geiger counter) for Post-Attack
Bendix 906 Dossimeter Charger PLUS 2 Dossimeters
Manual (pdf) for CDV-715 Use
Original Box

Below is the history + description-- This unit is in NEW OLD STOCK condition as these were put into fallout shelters. NOT JUST THE DETECTOR, this also includes the Dossimeter charger/callibrator and 2 dossimeters to measure an accumulated dose over time. These were tested and WORK!

These are in UNUSED condition, and there is no guarantee that the detector will measure radiation accurately but everything I can see says it will. The needle calibrates + it does register some background levels. The dossimeters + charger work as you can plug them in and "zero them out". Sold as collectibles. Includes a complete manual for use and the original box. ALL IN FANTASTIC UNUSED CONDITION

The CD V-715 was the most widely produced of all the Civil Defense radiation instruments with a total of 567,457 instruments produced. As far as I know Lionel, Victoreen and Landers Frary & Clark were the only manufacturers of the CD V-715.
The CD V-715 is a very high-range gamma radiation detecting instrument. It's not a true Geiger counter.
Its a survey meter for general postattack operational use. The ranges of this instrument are 0-0.5, 0-5, 0-50 and 0-500 roentgens/hour.
When properly calibrated, the response of this instrument is within the range of plus or minus 20 percent of the true gamma radiation dose from a Cobalt 60 or Cesium 137 radioactive source.

Designed for use by radiological monitors for the period following an attack. It is primarily for surface monitoring survey but it can serve as supplemental equipment for aerial measurements.
The smaller yellow box is a Bendix 906. The primary purpose of the Bendix 906 was to charge dossimeters. Charge means adjust the dosimeter so that the quartz fiber, visible through the eyepiece as a fine line running vertically across the scale, is set at zero. It could also be used to read the dosimeter. There is an extra bulb as well.
These Radiological Dosimeters are electrostatic devices used for measuring an
accumulated dose (over a period of time) of radiation. The civil defense dosimeters are the same type that would be used anywhere people have to measure their accumulated radiation dose. The electrostatic type of dosimeter is charged with a dosimeter charger (the 906). This charger, charges the inner chamber of the dosimeter tube with a high voltage charge which zeros the dosimeters hair like crystal in the viewing scale. When ionizing gamma radiation passes through the dosimeter it discharges it causing the hair like crystal to move up scale resulting in a reading of the accumulated dose received by the dosimeter.

BOTH RUN ON C BATTERIES
