    I've had this camera since 1979 and made many photographs with it.
    Wood is in overall good shape and was varnished before I bought it.
    Brass is in very good shape and would polish up nicely. Bellows are light tight and look good but are a little stiff. Leather hand strap is in great condition for it's age. It has rear swing and tilt, front rise/fall and shift. Movements are limited due to the nature of the construction. Dates from around 1946. I wouldn't call it an antique but it would make a nice addition to a collection or take it out and shoot with it. Used to draw a lot of attention when I took it out in public. I've been using my Speed Graphic as a field camera for a few years now so this camera hasn't seen any use.
    Asking $250 for this old classic and will include shipping.
    3% will go back to APUG.
    Thanks for looking.

    Edit. Made a dumb mistake on the title. It is a Crown View not a Graphic View. Oops.

    Yes, it is 4x5. It takes a lens board that is 4x4.

    Flea-bay sold one for over $319 last week. A good working camera in good condition. If it doesn't sell I'll keep it. Any offers?

    Sent a PM but don't know if it went through (doesn't appear in my "sent" messages). So I fired an email off to the listed address as well. Let me know if you get them.

    Thanks!

    Still up for grabs. A great old camera in working condition. Not many on the market these days.

    Last bump here. I've had a few interested at LFF but if it doesn't sell no biggie. Just wanted to find it a good home for a user/collector. Too many cameras in my stable already. Thanks to all who have viewed this thread.
