    fs: Velostigmat II 9.5 inch f4.5 with Diffusion Dial in Autex Shutter



    Wollensak Velostigmat Series II 9 1/2 inch focal length, f4.5-64 in Autex shutter

    Classic portrait and soft focus lens. I believe it is around 100 years old. Diffusion dial turns smoothly to adjust softness from 0-5. Includes original leather front and rear caps. Glass is in average shape with many bubbles and some cleaning scratches, but glass is clear with no separation. No problem for a soft focus lens.

    The Autex shutter needs work. Sometimes it works normally, but takes a long time to complete cycle to get set for the next shot. Also the air release action needs work. Includes a knurled ring to use as retaining ring.

    The 9.5 inch diffusion ring model is somewhat uncommon. I have priced this to account for the shutter needing service:

    $265 plus $10 for US postage, or $25 for international. Paypal accepted. Let me know if any questions or need better photos.
