    Sounds good

    Collin , Good idea , go check it out . If it's clean and no dents we got a deal !
    I don't know knowledgable you are about the graphic cameras , but the lensboards are
    different on a Super than on a Crown graphic . Crown and Speed Graphic boards are held
    in on top and bottom an supers are held by the sides . Graphic boards that say the word
    "Special" across the top of the board are dimpled on top and bottom and on the sides
    so that they fit both types of cameras . But these boards are rare , so to use crown and
    speed boards on a Super you have to glue .030 (thirty thousandths) thick shims where they
    capture on the sides . I'll do the board that the lens is on (it's bored for a #1 shutter)
    A drop of super glue gel does the job . The correct boards that fit the camera are bored
    for #0 shutters , so if you want to use a "super" board on a lens with a larger shutter
    you will have to have it bored to the correct size , unless you're handy with a dremel .

    Thanx , John

    I understand the lens board issue.
    The lens -- on the Crown you show a Press lens in a Linhof shutter.
    But on the Super it looks like a 75mm.
    Can you resolve the discrepancy for me?

    Collin , of course i can resolve that . On the message i sent you describing pictures 1 thru 4 ,
    on picture 3 i said" bellows and front rail somewhat extended , lens on camera NOT for sale.
    On picture 4 i explained to you that the lens on the crown goes w/ super graphic . sorry for the confusion , but i would never sell or trade my 75mm Super Angulon to anybody . My 75mm was on the Super graphic for a long time , that was my wide angle camera , the lens never came off .
    My Crown , on the other hand , was set up for 135 lenses and that is the focal length that stayed
    on that camera . I would switch off between my f3.8 and my other xenar which is an f4.7 which
    had a higher shutter speed . I would sometimes shoot wide open and get a beautiful bokeh .
    Thanx , John P.S. Would you want the 4.7 xenar instead ?
