    Edit: I just found out the camera I have is a 2x3 Century Graphic, not a Baby Graphic. Unfortunately, I can't edit the title of the ad.

    I just picked up a minty-ish 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 Century Graphic camera (aka Baby Graphic ?) with 2 1/4 square lever-action Singer Graflex 120 roll holder. I bought this on eBay because I'm trying to find a Graflock 3x4 and/or 2x3 back to adapt to wetplate use on a Cambo view camera I have. Problem is, I don't have the heart to cannibalize this Baby since it is in such good shape. Seriously, it appears never to have been used, perhaps only handled a bit, a little dust here and there. Both the camera and 120 roll holder appear to be in excellent condition, but untested by me. Unfortunately, the groundglass spring viewing frame piece & hood is missing.

    I'm looking to trade the camera body (w/o lens or lensboard) and roll holder for a small beater (or better) Graphic body with a Graflok back. I'd prefer the larger quarter-plate back but would swap for the smaller one too. I'd also just swap for an orphaned Graflock back w/o camera body. The Graflok back needs to be in a reasonable working condition but need not be pretty.

    I'm also looking for a Cambo/Calumet 4x5 Graflok back so would trade for one of those as well. I'd also swap for a 3x4 (or 2x3) RB Graflex in semi-working condition. The curtain does not need to be good, but the mirror needs to flip. Don't want a stinky, moldy one either.

    You pay shipping both ways and I'll call it even.

    Let me know what you have and I'll consider all offers made within a few days of this posting.
