I'm really not sure what Russ is looking for as I can never recall
seeing a battery test here for the mercury battery in an OM-1.
But I can think of an easy way of testing it which doesn't require any
voltmeters or testing equipment other than a gray card. Assuming that
you have no reason to doubt the accuracy of the meter, just do a
"sunny-16" check with your gray card. Of course, if you're unsure of
the accuracy of the meter and (of course) don't have a new mercury
battery... convert to silver oxide.
