    A Crown user body with 135mm Optar. Lens has excellent speeds thru 1 second. Pulled off the crappy rangefinder, shimmed the rails correctly and replaced the GG with a Satin Snow, ruled for 6x7 as well. Bellows is light tight. The marks you see are a result of removing the Velcro that I had attached to hold a dark cloth. The leather stayed, the black finish didn't. The front cover leather dried up and came off and I just polished the metal. Camera has a Graflok back worth $100 by itself. Comes with a set of stops. The lens won't trip a flash; I guess the contacts are shot or pitted. If your handy you can strip the leather easily and finish the wood off.

    Package deal is $225. Body without board is $135. A couple of good holders for $10.
