    Mamiya Six Folder
    $85 plus shipping

    This is an old folder from probably the 1940s. Covering is intact with some wrinkles, some tarnish on the metal but everything is pretty sound.

    Lens is Nitto Kogaku Co. Kominar f/3.5 75mm lens in a Copal shutter, speeds B and 1, 1/2, 1/5, 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 and 1/300 speeds. All speeds work well with no hesitation. Glass is very clean for its age, two little tiny pits in the front element, coated.

    Rangefinder works well. Takes 6x6cm pictures. Lens elements don't move to focus, the focal plane does move, a feature that I believe is unique to these cameras.

    Bellows passes flashlight test in darkened room -- couldn't see any pinholes.

    Figure about 2.8 pounds shipping weight from Zip Code 90027. I like to ship via Priority Mail; First Class or UPS is also available.

    I ship after PayPal clears to my bank account; this takes a few days.
