    I will give you seven guineas for it, not a farthing more.

    I am afraid I do not not have a cage for the guineas.....and my cats might not take too kindly to them.

    Steve didn't say whether they were fowl or pigs

    If he means the old Gold guineas then 7 seems rather a high price with the price of Gold as it is

    I should bring the Speed with me to London next time I go and sell it there. Shoot. What else have I got that will fetch a high price there and fit in my luggage??? Do you folks like American bubble gum? How about ball bearings? Guinea pigs?

    We get Hershey bars brought into work whenever someone visits one of our US factories. Please do us a favour and leave them at home!

    I recently sold a Speed Graphic Anni to a guy in Sweden for US$140 + $55 shipping. He seemed very eager to pay the high shipping for the low price of the camera.

    You could easily fund a week or so in the UK by coming over with some carefully chosen LF gear and selling it. Remember that aside from the quite high postage on larger items we (UK/EU) often get charged Import duty & VAT on the item & the postage, which can add another 21% approx, soon to rise by another 2½% in the UK.

    I was lucky I paid no taxes on the 3 Speed/Crown Graphics or a Busch Pressman I've bought from the US. In fact apart from two 10x8 Agfa Ansco's which were large packages I've only paid duty/VAT on 2 smaller packages ot of well over 50, both were LF lenses.

    Wade, I figured he was happy! The most recent price I've seen (and I see about 1 or 2 for sale a year in Sweden) is US$560. So, anyone having a spare Speed for less than 200 with shipping, bring em on! I'd love another one to replace the one I foolishly sold 6 years ago.

    Interestingly older cameras fetch even higher prices here in Turkey, I've seen two shops selling older antique cameras (one in Istanbul) and the prices are at least 2-3 times those in the UK.
