    Hi Peter,
    I'm assuming the images are from your camera. So it's a Yashica Mat 124-G, not "just" a Yashica Mat 124. You might wanna change your title to attract more people. I love my Mat 124-G. It's easy to handle, it looks great and the lens is just fine. I never used a Mat 124 so I can't tell you the differences.
    Good luck selling.

    The "G" was for gold contacts in light meter.

    I have one or I'd be busting open my piggy bank!
    I have a number of shots in my gallery here taken with a 124G, and this one looks to be in excellent shape.

    The internal winding gears are different between the G and non-G too giving a different sound, I think the selection of 120 and 220 is different (my non-G involves rotating the pressure plate) and the non-G has more chrome, the G more black as in the OP.

    I love my 124. The only real limitation is a tendency to flare with backlighting and that can be improved with better flocking but I've not found it a serious limitation. I get lots of compliments when out shooting with it too. :0
