    3 mamiya 6 iv folders , 2 leather ever-ready cases, 1 box, and 1 xeroxed instructions.

    camera 1
    working condition,
    working shutter ( i have never had it cla'd and never had trouble with speeds )
    glass fine
    RF viewer accurate, red dot ( double exposure prevention ) there
    pressure plate present
    leather case newer, leather strap, modern-ish tripod mount

    the wind knob is not calibrated to counter wheel
    ( will not effect mechanics of camera, there is a ruby window )
    missing a strip of leatherette on body's side where back release is.


    camera 2
    shutter fires, and seems accurate ( never used, cant attest to accuracy )
    glass fine,
    RF seems NOT accurate ( did not test ) no "double image "
    you will need to range focus.
    pressure plate present
    leather intact
    reads " made in occupied japan " on bottom
    the wind knob is not calibrated to counter wheel
    ( will not effect mechanics of camera, there is a ruby window )

    camera 3
    missing lens,
    standard separate from bellows
    parts camera ...

    ever ready cases
    1 old style
    1 newer style

    box
    old, not in good condition, but is a box


    it's a long story how i ended up with 3 of these cameras.
    i originally got and used it for over a year (100-200 rolls of 120 film).
    i went on a trip, didn't use the ever ready case and the wind knob broke off
    (there is a little threaded bolt and it snapped).
    i sent it to a "well known and well respected folder repair man",
    he did not fix it, but did something else and charged me $$.
    his "repair" lasted 1 roll of film.

    well, after his repair broke, i put my camera aside and put the wind knob and frame counter someplace "safe"
    well, the knob and counter were missing for 5 years. during that 5 year period, i searched for a parts camera
    just for the knob and threaded bolt ... it took 2 years but i found camera 2+3.
    today, the knob and counter wheel resurfaced so now, i am selling the threee cameras.
    i originally thought of just selling the 1 camera but i realize the parts are rare, so if something goes wrong down the road,
    your repair- guy won't have parts to repair it ... now s/he will !

    please PM me with any questions, i will be happy to tell you specifically who NOT to send it to ( from personal experience )

    175 + shipping+ insurance
    paypal only
    be advised ... i don't list things as "gift" on custom's forms

    Oh good. I was seriously tempted as I'd love to try a Mamiya Six some time but I need to sell some cameras first.

    Holy smokes, why didn't you offer to swap me for the Yash. I would have even included some extras.
