    I do not use these lenses anymore so they need a new home - I now find I use my convertible Protar and old Petzval lens most often. The glass on them is not perfect with cleaning marks, some blemishes in coatings, some small scratches and the 12 inch has a 1mm diameter chip in the rear element - all lenses are coated. In spite of this they still are great performers. The shutters fire on all speeds and the actual speeds are shown on the attached photos. Apertures open and close smoothly. Each lens comes with a retaining ring. If you have an Ektar in a broken Ilex shutter this is a good way to get a replacement shutter - the Ektars only fit an Ilex shutter specially made for Kodak and they can be hard to find.

    12 inch f6.3 Eastman Ektar. $185.00 plus shipping plus Paypal fees.

    10 inch f6.3 Commercial Ektar. $155.00 plus shipping plus Paypal fees.

    8 1/2 inch f6.3 Commercial Ektar. $155.00 plus shipping plus Paypal fees

    Those are very nice lenses. It's almost too bad I don't use sheet film anymore.
