    I have 2 antique project cameras to sell. This Folmer & Schwing 6.5X8.5 and a Rochester Optical Co. 8X10.

    This old camera has been sitting in the basement of an old Tonopah Nevada building for 70 years waiting to see the light of day again. It was filthy.

    I quickly cleaned off the first layer of grime just so the pictures might make your heart go pitty pat and cause you to want to restore this worthy old relic of the real wild west!

    If this camera could only talk and tell you what all it's seen! Bellows needed of course. WYSIWYG! You can read on line and learn how to fold up a bellows. They aren't that tough. I've made 3 so far. $85 plus shipping
