    I bought this at an estate sale last year when I waited outside in the cold for 3 hours to see the "amazing collection of records". It turned out that a box of 50 or so scratchy old 78s was someone's idea of an amazing collection of records. I wasn't leaving that house empty handed so I bought this little beauty for $30. I thought I might give film another try. I'm looking for enough to cover my investment, the shipping to you and maybe buy myself a drink and forget about those 3 hours I waited outside the estate sale.......3 hours of my life I will never get back.

    The soft "leather" ever-ready case is cracked and flaking, but keeping the camera in there all those years has left the camera absolutely minty. It's really beautiful. The aperture blades are snappy and oil-free and function as they should. Film advance and shutter seem to function perfectly. I haven't tested it out, but will blindly warranty it to work as it should. Let me know if you have any questions. Checking the completed auctions at eBay I see these routinely sell for over $100 with this faster f1.7 lens (a lot of them come with an f2)

    This would be a great camera for any youngsters (or oldsters) to learn about exposure and the basics of shooting film.
