    Made in U.S.A 8-1/2" (215mm) ILEX-CALUMET CALTAR

    These cells screw directly into a #1 shutter, ie copal, compur, prontor. This evidently is a tessar design very much the like the Kodak Commercial Ektar. I have gotten fine results with this lens on landscape, architecture and still life subjects. There are a few spots and scratches on the front surface, so I would rate this a user condition.

    $25 plus postage. Paypal accepted.

    These are still available. If you have a modern 210mm in copal 1, you can swap out the cells for these occasionally when you want a more classic look.
