Here's a typical battleship gray 5x7 B&J view camera, also from my collection. I bought it a year ago, thinking I was getting a 4x5 and that I'd be able to backpack it on hikes. Turned out to be a 5x7 with 5x7 and 4x5 backs (as well as an adapter which can be used to mount a graflok to the 4x5 frame if so desired). Anyway, I've rarely used it and need to thin down my herd.
It's a bit ugly - needs some cleaning and polishing, and there's rust on the metal frames of the ground glass panels. Bellows are in nice condition. Note the missing knob on the back - not a big deal in terms of usage, as long as you don't mind focusing with your left hand. Some looseness but nothing unusual for one of these. Both tripod mounts are good. Rear rail included. Includes two original lens boards, one with the retaining flange for a 135mm Optar/Graphex.
Asking $175 + shipping - camera is in northern NJ if you want to see it or pick it up. Paypal preferred. 3% to APUG.
