    FS: 24/25" (and possibly longer) early A Ross Petzval lens

    Here's a fairly early Andrew Ross Petzval, approx 24/25" (but possibly larger) f5, s/n 5896, which was sold by Sands Hunter, London including the lens hood, original flange and a full set of w/stops

    Photos will be added to this listing later today. Some more details:-

    1) the glass (for the age) is very good, a small scratch on the front element and a very minimal amount of clear separation on that element;

    2) I haven't been able to remove the rear lens section because my hands aren't wide enough. I had a similar issue with another Ross Petzval recently and WD40 easily dealt with that. There's a small amount of what I am certain is dirt and dust between the two cells and which I'm confident will be removed when these are separated;

    3) the brass has significant character, noticeably on the dull side and hasn't been restored;

    4) there's a small ding in the flange, which can be 'knocked out';

    5) including the lens hood, the total length is 11";

    6) the width of the glass is approx 124mm, multiplied by 5, results in the focal length of 24/25", which is 'a back focus calculation';

    7) in view of the weight, I haven't been able to fully mount it for coverage purposes but I did briefly put it in front of an 8 x 20 Korona a few months ago and I could see no signs of any vignetting; and

    8) the photos do not show the stops, which I've currently mislaid but are definitely included in this sale


    $6,995 plus shipping, and I'll swallow the paypal fees. This price is definitely negotiable, pm me please if interested


    regards
