    Hi folks. I posted a thread about this a while ago but didn't have pictures handy at the time, so now I'm doing another one. These are items from the estate of a friend's father that I am helping the family sell, since they aren't photo-savvy. We'll take any reasonable offers. I'm listing a starting point for "reasonable" estimated using recent eBay completed sales as a high-water-mark, so to speak. It's just a starting point. Make an offer. I ship to the lower 48, no PO Boxes unless you're an active APUGer I recognize. I'll eat shipping for everything but the projector, which I'm going to tack on $15 for (it'll actually cost me more than that, we'll share it). Anything over $50 will get shipping insurance on me. Payment via Paypal to bdh (at) umn.edu , please.

    On the lenses, I've confirmed that the focus and aperture look and feel reasonable. On the cameras, I've confirmed that I can cock and dry-fire them. There's too much stuff for me to run film through them or do any tuning, so beyond those basics everything should be considered as-is. Feel free to ask questions and I'll answer best I can, but I can't do any more in-depth testing of any items. Thanks for understanding.

    Each item includes a link to photos of the actual item (no stock crap). This is the first batch. I'll post some more later in the week.

    Kodak Signet 35 -- http://machinehum.com/sale/Signet%2035/

    M-Travenar 50/2.8 Macro -- http://machinehum.com/sale/M-Travenar/ -- I believe this is a Minolta MC mount?

    Nikkor-S Auto 35/2.8 -- http://machinehum.com/sale/Nikkor-S%2035_2.8/

    Royal 35-M -- http://machinehum.com/sale/Royal%2035M/

    Leitz Projector -- http://machinehum.com/sale/Leitz%20Projector/

    Here's a link to a Google Docs spreadsheet with more items that I haven't taken pictures of yet. Conditions are described.

    The Schneider Kreuznach Xenar 105/3.5 looks to be Exakta mount. Love those! What's your price on it?

    Thanks for the info! If that is the Exakta, let's call it $75. Seems to be pretty rare, not a lot of recent sales info on it, but judging by some stuff I can see in Europe lately that might be about right.

    As for the Canon RF items in the spreadsheet, since those have also been asked about.
    IV SB body - $135
    50/1.8 Serenar - This has what looks to me like fungus etching, judging by junked units on ebay let's call it $25.
    135/3.5 Serenar - Has the viewfinder, so let's say $100
    28/3.5 Serenar - Again has the viewfinder and case, let's start around $175

    These are ballparks. Make an offer if it sounds too high. Some of this stuff, hard to say.

    I didn't see that Xenar 105 listed anywhere -- is it already gone, or is there some items I don't see listed?

    Yep, the Xenar is gone, mentioned above. :smile:

    Hua-- I have no idea on a price for the projector. Make an offer? I'll check what sizes it takes when I get home later tonight.
