    I used a similiar idea when I sarted thinking about getting into 11x14. I started picking up 11x14 holders. It was about a year before I found a camera at the right price.

    Hi Nikki. I have a similar lens in the 11X14 size. It is very likely made by Wollensak and re-branded which they did a lot in that era. It would probably correspond to what Wolly called the "Royal Anastigmat" in the 1906 catalog. It's neither a Dagor or Protar type as most "anastigmat's" of that era were. My 11X14 lens is 8 elements in 4 groups. 2-2--2-2 (( (( )) )). An oddity. I've not made a photograph with it yet so can't comment. Initial thoughts are that 8 air-glass interfaces with no coatings usually robs a lot of contrast. Your 8X10 is likely a 13" or 330mm lens. Hope this isn't all just Greek

    BTW if you or someone close is the "handy" type, I have a shabby old Kodak 2D to sell. I think I'm in it about $80. It needs a restoration++.

And if it matters to you, it mattered to me, the seller can give 3% to AUPG instead of infated fees to e-pay!

    oh, you can also ask advice about purchases such as your lens before you buy.

    ---end of commercial, we now return you to your regularly scheduled program---
    I was considering doing that but since I posted this thread I have 2 different offers to sell me a Kodak 2D. It must the the classic beginners camera!

    I would always rather buy from APUG members. I've learned so much here.

    I agree that will be the true test.

    Thanks for the info David. I checked the lens and the previous owner had light scratched in the us numbers above the fstops.
