The back is half there. The spring part is gone. I could fashion something with rubber bands, but I may as well make a pinhole if I'm going to do that. If I can get the shutter working, I'm going to restore the thing, starting with the cosmetics and ending with a replacement shutter. If I can't, I'm going to make it into a really interesting pinhole camera. The shutter nob works smoothly now that I've figured out how the kids ripped the thing, but the trip lever is frozen.

I've got your 4x5 back. It's adapted with a Graflex back. Recently refinished with fresh B&J gray paint and new foam light seals. Fit is excellent.
