    Universal Heliar

    Hi!

    Could anyone please tell me what should I expect to receive for a 36cm 4.5 Universal Heliar (uncoated), in great condition?

    Do you have a buyer in mind? - If not, I am interested, but can not at this stage suggest a fair price - Meaning a price fair to both parties

    This one is also from romania. I listed it on ebay and I had an offer for a private sale at $1000. It's not mine, so I can't decide. We'll see how it goes.

    Check antique cameras.net...... If I were to sell mine the minimum would be $1,450. but it's not for sale. Good luck. Bill

    There are only 300mm on the Antique camera site. But it does give an idea of the wide range these things go for.
    With ebay and Auctions such as in Europe the selling price is known.
    The actual selling prices on site's like this and LFPF are actually not usually known (asking prices are).
    Anyway you will find out on April 10 at 1300 pdt. if you don't pull the auction and take the $1000.
    Perhaps one reason why some may play their cards close to their chests, is to counter others playing two sides against the middle.
    Commerce is complicated.
    Heck I would give you $1001

    When you check prices, note that the Universal Heliar, with the ring to adjust diffusion, usually goes for a good deal more than the regular Heliar without the ring (the one in my avatar is the latter).
