    A nice addition...

    I just picked up a Voigtlander Bessa66 withthe 75mm Skopar and yellow hinged filter, Compur shutter... intact case with one small scuff, no scuffs or wear marks on the body, no fungus, shutter might not be right on but is reasonably accurate. I was worried the shutter release wasn't working till I figured out the camera needs to be loaded to make it work... Viewfinder needs a cleaning.

    $12.50 at a local antiques place specializing in estate sales.

    This thing looks new! Any idea of the age? It's not a color Skopar (at least it doesn't say so) and has a top speed of 1/300. It has the integrated view finder, not the pop up.

    Tim, you say it has the integrated finder. That probably makes it early post-WWII.

    Good snag.

    Dan,

    That sounds about right. The Compur shutter and what looks like a non-coated lens says pre-1950. I am anxious to see what the negatives look like. I put in a roll of PanF. That should shake it out proper.
