and the story is, the prism suffers from significant delivering. Counter quit working also. Otherwise tip-top shape. Shutter, film advance, etc are smooth and right. You could shoot just as it is with no problem as long as you were OK with the annoyance of the prism gunk and the counter. Best part: All proceeds including shipping charges will benefit our local community radio station, WCUW, broadcasting at 91.3 FM in Worcester, MA and also streaming at www.wcuw.org. Buyer pays only actual shipping, which will be not much. Enjoy!!
