    Hi, all -

    I'm trolling for a 35mm folder, preferably with coupled rangefinder. Something like an Ansco Super Regent, one of the Retinas with a rangefinder, a Contina II, etc. Needing work is fine, so long as the glass is in good shape and nothing is irreparably broken.

    Anyone have anything?

    I have a beautiful Retina IIc with a frozen Synchro Compur shutter. It has been a wall decoration now for two years. I have no idea if it can be repaired or if there may yet be other issues with it, as I've never been able to fire it to find out. Rangefinder patch contrast is very good, albeit a bit dim. The Xenon 2.8 glass is very clean. If you want to roll the dice on it I'll entertain most any offer. I believe I have the case for it as well.

    I have a Retinette with a 45mm Schneider, no meter and the RF isn't coupled, but tack sharp and light. It's smaller than a Retina tho not a folder.

    I have a very old but mint condition retina 1a scale focus 35mm with mint case in box. Very affordable. Thanks, Bob in Michigan
