Just look at that magnificent bastard. Judging by the serial number on the lens, it was built in 1942. No leaks on the bellows, everything mostly works, it seems, but the side rangefinder might not be set correctly. Came with three 4 x 5 film holders and and old style 12 shot magazine (need to check the leather pouch for leaks). All in all, it appears to be in excellent shape for a 75 year old camera! One drawback will be cost. One box of Arista Edu ISO 100 (25 sheets) cost ~$30, and developing so $4/Sheet. Methinks I’ll have to dog out my developing stuff soon, if I want to shoot this a lot.
