There is no 60 mm for the Nikonos V. There is an 80 mm or 85 mm
but it's not terribly useful. The only photos I've ever seen done
with it were surfer photos up close and personal in the tube.

To get more macro than what you already have, you need extension tubes.
What you have is about 6:1. Tubes will take you to 3:1, 2:1, 1:1,
even 1:2 (twice life size on the film). With the extension tubes
come framers.

Elaine also shoots a housed SLR, where Nikon's 60 mm macro makes
lots of sense in California.
