FS: Graflex 22 Model 200 Twin lens camera nice!
From the Good Old Daystm when men were boys and dogs were named "Scout" comes a Graflex 22 Model 200 twin lens camera iwith 85m lens in very good condition. It would be excellent except for some scratches in the chrome name plate. Takes 120 film and I'll even throw in a couple of empty spools for use as take-up spools to get you started! Both taking and viewing lenses are coated, if you can believe it! Both lenses are a bit dirty, which shouldn't come as a surprise considering how long these things have been out there but the glass otherwise looks good. The focusing hood features a flip-up magnifier as well as the front pushing down to form what they called back in the day a "sports finder". Aperture works smoothly and goes from f/3.5 to f/22. Shutter speeds run from 1/10 to 1/200 and include B and T. The shutter is self-cocking and can be tripped by either a lever on the front of the camera or by a cable release. Focusing knob operates smoothly and has a few small dings in the chrome. The leather\leatherette\whatever it is covered with is gray and in excellent condition. The camera comes with a thin strap but it looks like its more for fashion than for use. Maybe everything looked like that back then; I wouldn't know, I wasn't around yet.
It ought to take pictures but how well it does so I don't know. My wife brought two of these home from a collector's estate sale; the other one isn't so nice and I'll list it next. All considered, $50 for this nice example, plus shipping. I take Paypal and USPS money orders (United States Post Office ONLY!) Thanks for looking and don't pass up this chance to own an object built in the same period as television heroes named "Buster" and "Flash". Hey, you can't beat that, or do without it, either!
