I need some expert help.
I just bought a Voigtländer lens and it got stuck in customs!!
I have been charged more than 50% in taxes which Pi#### me off..
but I just learned, that if the item is a genuine antique (100 years or more), I don't have to pay taxes at all, which U would prefer:rolleyes:
it's an EURYSCOP IV, NO.3,FROM VOIGHTLANDER & SOHN NO.61635.
so how can I "prove" this is more than 100 years old? (if so)
I looked in the Vademecum, but I am uncertain whether I read it right, when I find it to be from 1881 ca?
the lens is a 6.3, and that is not mentioned in the Vademecum.
Unfortunately I don't have the serial number/year from that brand, but I truely hope someone in here will help me...
