    A nice lens for 8x10 shooting. I have shot portraits wide open with it with very nice results and still life subjects at f64. Nice round aperture. Glass is in good shooting condition, but has the usual dust and scratches, etc. The shutter does not work, but you can use the lens cap/hat method of exposing, which I have done in for 1/4 sec. to 60 minutes exposures. Or great if you do wet plate.

    The shutter may be able to be repaired. The blades jam up. It looks like they have not been put back in the correct order, so if you are handy you might be able to fix. Flange is missing and this one doesn't have the diffusion ring option.

    $150 plus postage.
