    FS: Olympus XA presentation case...the first one produced?

    Well, it could be number one, couldn't it? We'll never know, so let's say it is the first one ever made. Or the last, take your pick. Or the case which once held Elvis Presley's XA. The very same XA he used to take pictures of jelly doughnuts and peanut butter and banana sandwiches. At any rate, if you need an XA presentation case, here's probably the very case you've been dreaming about. In nice condition with no breaks, inside shows the effects of time but not badly and the styrofoam flash dummy is present. Most of these styrofoam pieces were tossed long years ago, but I kept this one just for this special day. $8 plus actual cost of shipping.

    PayPal ok for international purchases but check/cash/money order for domestic purchases please.

    If questions please ask.

    Hi Jon,

    The XA case arrived and is perfect.

    By the way... When I took out the bottom insert there was a key for a 1962 Cadillac. Any idea whose that was?

    Quite a mystery.

    Thank you, Bill

    I think it must have belonged to Big E himself.

    Thank you. Thank you very much.

    The key? Ah, well I'm very glad you found it! It fits this car right here: http://www.colinsclassicauto.com/detail.php?car=408

    They're trying to sell it, but don't pay any attention to that. Just get on a plane, fly to Milwaukee, take a cab to Wolksi's on North Pulaski (kind of behind Brady Street), have a few Schiltz beers and then start her up and drive her home. Pick up a few Slim Jims in case you get hungry on the trip back. If anyone asks you any questions, just tell them Jon said it was ok and that you were picking it up to take it back where it belongs.
