    The original F's have the chrome and I think all of the later incarnations were all black. I'm no expert either though.

    Really? I'm not doubting you but I am surprised.

    They have been going on Ebay for right at $300.00. I parted out one myself a year or so a go. They are worth more as parts than together.

    Oops, I missed a zero. Yeah, $200 is about right. Depending on the lens, which looks like a 135mm or 150mm, which should add a couple hundred more.

    If you tell us everything inscribed on the lens, you can expect meaningful comments as to its worth. Look thru the glass and report any "haze" or little black specks, etc. If you feel comfortable about trying the shutter operation, give it a whirl but don't force anything, and report any stickiness or sluggishness.

    I use this type of kit I would expect this to go higher not lower than $400.

I believe the value, as I stated, is close to Jon's estimate, but artists, still life photographers, studio hobbyists, etc, are the market, and a real world sale depends greatly on where it is sold and even on what day. If the right person sees the kit, maybe the value will be realized, if not, I would expect it to sell at closer to $200. The other suggested users have many options for what format and what type of camera they carry around, and a monorail is not easy to deal with outside of a studio.

    Just sayin'

    parts

    An old camera is worth what you can get for it. At your local thrift shop, very little. On the Internet, quite a bit. If you parted it out, sold it bit by bit, it would fetch a lot of money. Looks first class to me and I think $300 is cheap. And I have a lot of $5 great but worthless olde cameras. J just bought a Kodak Jiffy folder for $5 and I love it.

    The lens looks like a Symmar-S or something, it's new enough to be MC at least. If the shutter works and glass is clean, expect $100-150 just for that.
    I was looking for an LF camera last year, anything with Sinar on it went for $300 or more so I rapidly gave up on them and ended up with a Toyo.
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    The value depends on the location, it's worth far more if it's outside the US, or sold outside the US.
