OM-1 GOLD   Both the camera and the 50/1.8 lens are gold plated.  Strangely,  the boxes are just  standard boxes.  Camera serial number is 204684, the lens 3151543.

According to  the excellent The Unofficial Olympus OM Sales Information File,  only 25 OM-1 Gold were made for the 20th Anniversary of the OM-1.  The first 24 had gold 50/1.8 lenses, the last a gold 50/1.4 lens.  They were not sold to the public, but were given out to as public relations gifts to selected dealers and friends of Olympus.
