    I was very excited to receive my new to me Rolleiflex in the mail today only to discover that the upper take up spool knob was laying in the box next to the camera. It appears to be held on by 3 tiny screws which are clearly missing........I will be sending it back o the seller for a refund. I guess I'll have to look for another one now.

    if it is good condition otherwise and everything works well, and if the optics are good and scratch free then I think I would go shopping for 3 screws instead.

    Well there is a 7 day return policy on this and it would be hard to run some tests on it and get it back within 7 days. The focus knob is also a little sticky and not very smooth. This is an ebay item from a person who has quite a few negative feedback however I thought I would take a chance anyway........Turns out the negative feedback was probably warranted. Lesson learned I guess
