I sent these mics to a friend who records and produces projects for himself and others. He has a solid stash of vintage mics himself. His report was that they work perfectly, sound excellent, and that the work they did will be on a new record he's working on.
The mics were originally owned by Harry Maslin, producer of artists like David Bowie, etc.
The pair shows signs of use but not abuse. The original boxes are intact and include the original keys for each as well as the original paperwork.
A great find in this condition.

The Neumann KM86 miniature condenser microphone is equipped with a head assembly made up of two separate capsules.
Three directional characteristics, omni, cardioid, and figure-8 can be selected by means of a switch located below the head.
In the cardioid position, the KM86 has the excellent characteristics of the KM84 microphone.
In the figure-8 it produces unfalsified low-frequency response even for distant pickups, something of which conventional dual-membrane capsules are not capable. This is of great advantage when it is used for applications where the distance from the sound source cannnot be reduced to less than three feet. Frequency range: 40-20,000 Hz.
