    I think mine is in a Rapax shutter. It's an older ser. III version.

    Is it a german or american Dagor?

    I have the lens cells for a german 168/6,8 Dagor that don't fit in any shutter I've tried. The lens came with a Compur 1 without the shutter mechanism, so only the aperture was usable. It should be possible to have thread adapters made, though.

    Mine is a German version. It may have been adapted. The lens seems considerably older than the shutter.

    It just covers 8x10".
