    Beautiful Century No. 1 6½X8½ Camera Outfit

    We can do this any of several ways. Camera alone, Camera and 3 film holders, or Camera, lens, and 3 holders.


    The camera is in very nice over-all condition. Not perfect, but a very presentable user. The standards roll crisply and are not wobbling. The wood is pretty. Original finish is very nice indeed.


    The bellows I will guess and be fairly accurate I think, was replaced perhaps 65 years ago. It's usable but it sags a bit and has to be propped in the middle. It passed the pinhole test, but it's a little crispy / fragile. It'll get a new owner by for a good time.


    The lens board didn't pass the light tight test and that explains all of the nasty tape residue up front. A new lensboard that matches the wood is a fairly easy fix.


    More pics below. The lens is gorgeous. It's a Bausch & Lomb Tessar 8 1/4" f4.5 in a Compound shutter that's running perfectly. It covers with good movements, especially stopped down. 8 1/4 is a wide field on this camera, rather like a 127 on a 4X5.

    So heres the deal. Camera alone, $285. Camera with 3 FILM holders in good usable shape, $565 Camera with lens and 3 holders $795. No I won't sell the holders seperately. Lens alone is possible though at $265 including original flange. Sweet lens.
