    I obtained a 210mm Raptar for somewhat more than $15 and was very impressed with the quality and "look". The only downside for me is that if the shutter fails I understand that they are difficult to remount into a modern shutter. Mind you for $15 it wouldn't matter too much.

    "If the shutter fails" you send it to Carol at Flutots. For a $65 (+) fee or whatever she charges these days, it'll come back better than those new-fangled Copal thingies, and last longer than those Kodak Supermatic ergonomic disasters.... I've had Wollie shutters for the last few decades on a variety of lenses and they are really reliable machines.
