Old hand held light meters


A few of the vintage/antique stores near me have some interesting looking older light meters available for sale. A couple in particular have caught my eye because of their size (tiny) and the construction quality (all metal with attached leather case). Unfortunately, neither seem to be working. I was wondering what might be wrong with them. Neither have a door for a battery so I assume they run with just the photocell...do these go "bad" and if so can they be repaired (I have good repair skills, not a trained tech, but usually able to take something apart and get it back together again). Thanks for your input.
