    Well, got an extra.

    First the bad: Has some scratches where the "AS" identifier is on the nameplate, as well as some minor brassing on the edges of said nameplate. The other cosmetic issue is in relation to the eyepiece frame. Leatherette is pulling away. Inside, the shutter speed indicator seems to be slightly off, but still useable.

    The good: Meter works great and has been upgraded to the lifetime warranty ring resistor that Sover Wong sells. Prism glass is clean with no discernible line. Casting is intact and uncracked. Contacts for the DS-12 are not corroded. AI meter coupling is smooth and does not bind at any point in its travel.

    Comes with a black F2 (#7424033) body that has a broken battery tag. Am essentially using the body as a bottom cap for the finder. Shutter sounds fine and seems to fire at the right speeds. Bad foam, and the usual wind-end ding, plus some brassing. Missing battery cap. Has the J screen installed (microprism spot).

    $175, plus shipping via USPS. Will ship internationally. PayPal is fine.

    What is the "usual wind-end ding"?

    There are two small dings between the advance lever and the edge of the top cover. Black F2 bodies usually seem to have impact damage in that area.
