Estate items -- Canan RF, Leitz, Kodak, Royal, more
Hi folks. I posted a thread about this a while ago but didn't have pictures handy at the time, so now I'm doing another one. These are items from the estate of a friend's father that I am helping the family sell, since they aren't photo-savvy. We'll take any reasonable offers. I'm listing a starting point for "reasonable" estimated using recent eBay completed sales as a high-water-mark, so to speak. It's just a starting point. Make an offer. I ship to the lower 48, no PO Boxes unless you're an active APUGer I recognize. I'll eat shipping for everything but the projector, which I'm going to tack on $15 for (it'll actually cost me more than that, we'll share it). Anything over $50 will get shipping insurance on me. Payment via Paypal to bdh (at) umn.edu , please.
On the lenses, I've confirmed that the focus and aperture look and feel reasonable. On the cameras, I've confirmed that I can cock and dry-fire them. There's too much stuff for me to run film through them or do any tuning, so beyond those basics everything should be considered as-is. Feel free to ask questions and I'll answer best I can, but I can't do any more in-depth testing of any items. Thanks for understanding.
Each item includes a link to photos of the actual item (no stock crap). This is the first batch. I'll post some more later in the week.
Kodak Signet 35 -- http://machinehum.com/sale/Signet%2035/
M-Travenar 50/2.8 Macro -- http://machinehum.com/sale/M-Travenar/ -- I believe this is a Minolta MC mount?
Nikkor-S Auto 35/2.8 -- http://machinehum.com/sale/Nikkor-S%2035_2.8/
Royal 35-M -- http://machinehum.com/sale/Royal%2035M/
Leitz Projector -- http://machinehum.com/sale/Leitz%20Projector/
Here's a link to a Google Docs spreadsheet with more items that I haven't taken pictures of yet. Conditions are described.

Reason: xenar sold.
The Schneider Kreuznach Xenar 105/3.5 looks to be Exakta mount. Love those! What's your price on it?

Thanks for the info! If that is the Exakta, let's call it $75. Seems to be pretty rare, not a lot of recent sales info on it, but judging by some stuff I can see in Europe lately that might be about right.
As for the Canon RF items in the spreadsheet, since those have also been asked about.
IV SB body - $135
50/1.8 Serenar - This has what looks to me like fungus etching, judging by junked units on ebay let's call it $25.
135/3.5 Serenar - Has the viewfinder, so let's say $100
28/3.5 Serenar - Again has the viewfinder and case, let's start around $175
These are ballparks. Make an offer if it sounds too high. Some of this stuff, hard to say.
tjaded has snapped up the Canon RF items and the Xenar, everything else is still available.
What's the price on the leith projector? Does it take 645 slides?

I didn't see that Xenar 105 listed anywhere -- is it already gone, or is there some items I don't see listed?
Yep, the Xenar is gone, mentioned above.
Hua-- I have no idea on a price for the projector. Make an offer? I'll check what sizes it takes when I get home later tonight.
