Item specifics

Brand:

Graflex

 
This is a nice 3.25" x 4.25" Graflex Speed Graphic camera, from around 1949, judging from the serial number, which is 752967.  I am assuming this is a Pacemaker, given its attributes and the serial number.  It has a Graflex Optar 135mm f/4.7 lens, and a focal plane shutter.  There is a side-mounted Hugo Meyer range finder, as well as the peep site. The bellows are in good shape, no wear, cracks or holes.  I light-tested it, and no light escapes from the bellows.  The rear focal plane shutter curtain is also in good shape, no tears or cracks, and does operate, although the mechanism probably needs lubricating, as the shutter runs slowly in some of the settings.  The lens is in good shape, no scratches that I could see, and the shutter works. The front standard has tilt back, shift and rise. The ground glass focusing plate is in good shape, as is the spring-loaded hood covering it. There is some wear to the paint on the back.  The leather is in good shape, the handle showing some wear, but still solid. There is a brace to hold a flash attachment on the right side of the camera, but no flash is present. I will include 8 double-side cut sheet film holders that I got with this camera.  I welcome any questions and any information you can give me on this camera.  I have never used one of these.  I figured out the basics from reading on the internet. Canon I know.  Graflex I don't.  So ask away!  I do know that the man who previously owned this used it for many years and loved it.  

Postage will be as shown for Priority Mail delivery to any address in the U.S.  I welcome bidders from outside the U.S., but please contact me prior to bidding if the camera is to be sent to any address outside the U.S. to get an exact postage cost.  EBay postage calculator is sometimes incorrect on international postage.  This package will not be inexpensive to ship outside the U.S., as it weighs 9 pounds 10 ounces, and must be sent Priority Mail International.  Payment will be by Paypal unless other arrangements have been made with me prior to bidding.  I will notify the winning bidder at the conclusion of the auction by Paypal invoice.  Good luck!
