    I have no connection with these. I just have a fascination for old cameras.

    French rotating lens camera:

    Not a panoramic, but the 5x7 Stereo Auto Graflex reflex camera (included because I've never seen anything but the tiny McKeown's photo):

    there's also a #10 outfit ( I've heard of one other and would want to check to make sure it's really a #10, not a #8) and a #6 camera.
    They only made 126 #6 cameras, and the #10 outfit, if that's what it is, is extremely rare. lot's of amazing items through that auction house. Oh well- out of my budget.
    Someones also selling a nice #16 on ebay right now.

    A friend looked at it and said it's really a #8 up for auction. I'm not surprised.

    also make note of the buyer premium and taxes they tack on. that should be considered for big ticket items as it will make a huge difference if you're close to your budget limit.

    The starting bids were lowered this weekend for the items in the live auction without bids the 6 camera isn't looking so bad, though the 10 that's really a eight is still high
