    I was going through my "filter" drawer the other day, and I came across this focusing screen. I want to sell it but am not sure which camera it is for. Since it is square I am wondering if it came from a Hasselblad 501CM that I used to own. Any thoughts?

    Yep, looks like a standard 500C/M screen (part #42161).

    It's a screen for a 500C, not a 500C/M.

    The C/M screens have straight skirts going down at the four corners. Yours does not.

    That sounds reasonable. The last time I checked the exchange rate was 2.583!

    I thought the screen for the 500C came in several separate parts, like this one. That looks like a 500C/M screen to me - maybe an early one?
