    Up for sale is a very nice 9" Pantagraph Rapid Rectilinear that was distributed by Jos W. Queen & Co., Philidelphia with flange and waterhouse stops in original leather case. Has a nice threaded hood. Glass is clean and clear with no marks on the front or rear element, there is a little edge seperation from the balsam glue but it is on the edge only and did not have any effect on the image on the GG of my Toyo 45. Covers 4X5 easily and 5X7 as well, the lens states 5X8 engraved on it. (see last photo)

    I just bought a Voigtlander Euryscop III to replace this lens so this one has to go to help pay for it. Please feel free to email me with any questions. Price includes USPS Priority shipping with insurance and delivery confirmation in the US. Intl shipping will be more, probably around $25 more taking into account the shipping that is included in the price.

    $185 Shipped

    Here is a sample shot from the lens, please forgive the scan. I do not have a film scanner so this is a scan from a print - scanned with my crappy flatbed scanner. I probably would do better to take a photo with my wife's DSLR of the actual print...lol. The lens exhibits nice bokeh and softness wide open that is beautiful for portraits. This shot is on Efke 25, developed in Xtol 1:3 for 11min, wide open at f8 - 1/5.
