    Increasing the price range a bit.

    Looking for one of the following 4x5" cameras:

    Burke & James Press
    Busch Pressman D
    Tower Press
    Meridian 45B
    Etc...

    Must have:

    Rangefinder (Kalart preferred, but open)
    Rotating back with ground glass & spring back
    Bellows in perfectly functional shape

    --

    I have some stuff to trade if you're interested, namely:

    Burke & James Orbit, 4x5" Monorail - perfect condition
    Kodak 2D 8x10 View Camera - very good condition, good bellows
    215mm f/6.3 Orbit in Copal 1 - Caltar copy(?), covers 5x7"
    8-1/4" f/4.5 Wollensak Velostigmat in Betax 4 - good shape, shutter inaccurate

    I'll pay a $25 finders fee to whomever can locate me a dream camera, and resulting in a satisfactory sale. Perhaps this will incentivize someone to ask their friends, family and neighbors.

    Mind you, the $225 price would be for a camera with an above average lens (not a 127mm or 135mm Ektar, Raptar, etc.) and the whole shooting match in great condition.

    $125 would be for a good condition camera w/o lens, $150-$175 for something with an Ektar and the like.

    Thanks, will call shortly.

    But, can anyone tell me if the specials always had the top-mounted RF or was there overlap with the ≤1955 Kalart?
