    Hi, all -

    For sale is my recently-rehabbed Rolleiflex Automat 2, serial 683509.

    This one comes with a 75/3.5 CZJ Tessar. The shutter's been cleaned and adjusted; speeds sound approriate and work reliably. Glass is clean and has no marks that I can find. Leather is in good shape; the paint has marks/chips/scratches, though. It's a user - a nice one - but a user. The dim original Rollei screen has been replaced with that of an RB67, a very fine Fresnel screen.

    The self timer does not work, however. Inside is clean. The automat counting feature works perfectly.

    Some images from this camera:

    Considering the time and money I have into parts and repairs on this, I'd like to get $175 plus insured shipping, PayPal only please ("gift" appreciated but at the buyer's discretion).

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Indeed. Could you let us know the serial number of the lens? That is always nice to know in the case of Zeiss glass.

    Thanks,
    Jon

    Sure thing - the taking serial is 2180506. Puts it around 1937, right?

    Note: The serial puts this as an Automat 1 (RF111A). The taking serial dates the lens to 1937. Not sure how I missed this one... :confused:
