    I don't use this, so it's time to move it along to someone who will.

    Nice user. Everything works well. The rangefinder is accurate, the shutters provide good exposure, I didn't have any light leaks from the holders (or anything else).

    The kit includes: Graflex Crown Graphic 4x5 with a "Graflex" back. This uses the slotted film holders, 5 of which are included. Also included is the appropriate "bag mag" with 12 septums for fast work using the rangefinder. The sports finder is intact and works great.

    BOTH a 135mm f4.7 Optar on a Graflex board and a 90mm f6.8 Optar on a home-made (and light tight!) board are included. Lenses are clean. A little dust, perhaps a coating mark here or there, but fully serviceable and sharp.

    There is a full set of 7 filters in a leather wallet, and a series holder and lens hood. There is an old GE light meter that responds to light, and a couple of original manuals too. Finally it all comes in an original beat up but perfectly functional vulcanite case. Everything you need to go out and shoot 4x5.

    $340 shipped in CONUS. Extra if it goes further. I'll take care of the paypal fees. Let me know if you have questions.

    Hi firefli,

    Maybe I wasn't clear-- I will be happy to sell the Crown outside CONUS, I would just need to charge any additional shipping. I figured about $20 ground shipping to CONUS, so the difference between that and actual cost would be the premium.

    Thanks for your interest.
