    Nice little Eastman View No. 1 which needs the bellows replaced or at least "wrapped" with a dark cloth when taking pictures. It has its extension rail. A no name lens with broken piston shutter included, glass is good and a home made lens board is included. I believe it is a convertible RR. The aperture scale goes from f8 to f45.

    The "jewels" of this camera are the 3 Eastman 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 natural brown color film holders and 2 Folmer Graflex whole plate holders with one of them having an after market 1/4 plate (film) insert in it. It was done several decades ago, was a quality job, and can be removed by one if wanted to re-convert it to a 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 film holder.

    Asking $525 plus shipping/insurance/paypal fees if paid for in that manner. This price works out to be $80 per whole plate film holder and $125 for a usable Whole Plate View Camera and a lens. 3% of sale price to APUG. I will post some pictures later this week. Send me pm or email.
    Thanks. Jon

    If the group package can't be sold, how about $300 delivered to you in the USA for the 3 Eastman 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 natural brown color film holders?

    $150 for the 2 Folmer Graflex whole plate holders with one of them having an after market 1/4 plate (film) insert in it?
    $100 for the Whole Plate Back and $100 for the whole plate extension rail? Shipping costs extra on these items.

    Then I'll keep the remainder unless someone can make me an offer which I can't refuse, e.g., $75 for the front rail and $65 for the no name lens? I think it is a B&L RR. The glass is clean.

    Here are some pictures.

    The Eastman View #1 with without the extension rail, but with the WP back, $110 plus shipping/insurance and paypayl fees if paid for in that manner?

    Probable "no name" RR f8 B&L lens in in a non working shutter with flange $60?

    All items are plus shipping/insurance and paypal fees if paid for in that manner. 3% to APUG.

    That's great Roger. Look forward to seeing your results. I still have 3 whole plate cameras and find it a very pleasing film size. Although I have a few boxes of whole plate size film, I think the X-Ray film is a very promising option too given its inexpensive price.

    I am attaching a few pictures of this old, but restorable Whole Plate Eastman View Camera. As one can see, it goes not have the gg nor is there a rear rail with it. There is small chip of wood missing on the rear standard.

    $100 plus shipping/insurance and paypal fees if paid for in that manner.

    There are also the Whole Plate holders listed for sale.
