I wish I can ask better question than finding average price to pay for Voigtländer Aus 6.5x9 that have Skopar and Ibsor shutter. I find one that is selling Euro 120, seems very high...

The Heliar is *enormously* more expensive than the Skopar, though, and the location sounds like it might be from one of the Central European vendors who serve the high-end collector community.
In my experience, the 6.5x9 plate cameras are too uncommon to make an easy generalization about price. I have a 6.5x9 Avus in cosmetically poor shape that I got for a song---I basically bought it for the ground glass, and it turns out to be a decently usable camera though rough-looking. I think you just have to watch eBay, the APUG classifieds, and so on for a long time, and jump on a good deal when it comes up.
Euro 120 doesn't really seem outlandish to me, *if* it's in thoroughly good shape and has some film holders with it.

I may settle down with Zeiss Ikon Ideal with Rollex roll-film adapter.

Darko Saric lives in Hamburg and he reports film cameras are extremelly cheap at street sellers. He buys a new Leica P&S every week for 5 euros or so. He generously sent me Leica Mini II to me for 15 euros. May be you cant find exactly whatever you find , but you can find you did not expect also. Find a tessar and be happy all your life.120 euros is hell of money for lots of us. Or collect money for two months.
