    I haven't used this baby in a while, so it's only fair to pass it on to someone who will. This Rolleicord in very good condition especially considering it's age (I don't know it's exact age, but I'm guessing 60s or 70s--it's serial number is1309196). There is little bit of brassing and peeling of the leatherette, but overall it looks very nice. It has a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 1:3.5/75mm lens, and boy to do those photos look good! The shutter speeds are accurate down to 1/25th of a second. Once you get slower than 1/10'th of a second it'll start to stick, though the bulb setting works fine and won't stick.

    The ground glass is the non-replaceable version, and is the nice retro-grid style.

    This would make a wonderful camera for a photography student. It's very easy to take candid shots with a waist-level finder camera (no one really knows you're photographing them--great for street photography!). And it's so much quieter than an SLR (those Hasselblads and Bronicas are LOUD!). (Disclosure--I love my Hasselblad...) I guess it would be a great addition to a collection, but I'd rather see this fellow go to someone who will use it!

    Asking $100 plus shipping.
