    The funny thing about cameras purchased for decoration is that the owners end up selling them later on craigslist for 'old decoration' prices.

    I picked up an Minolta 7sII from someone who had purchased it as a decoration originally and was getting rid of it. Turned out to be in 50% working condition... enough to combine with another 7sII to almost have a working camera. :wink:

    I like the part about mid-century. The Zorki 4K up front dates from the 1970s

    Well, each one is unique, seeing as they are Soviet cameras. No two have the same exact defects.

    Hey!

    How did they get hold of my FED 3b with the Zebra lens!? I just last evening got done fixing more shutter curtain pinholes with black photo tape. So mine is now probably worth at least $199...

    I would like that leather case, though.

    Well, that's how long it takes for them to get one from eBay, then ship it out to you.

    From Russia? Most eBay purchases of FSU stuff takes about a month.
