    It was in a used furniture shop. Saw the brown case of the Leica there with a tag on it $20. Asked if they had any more cameras and the ICA came out.

    Selling a set of 1953 baseball cards I collected as a kid for a (then new) Hasselblad 500cm with the 80mm and 150 mm lenses. I forgot I had the cards and found the at my parent's house after learning of someone looking to buy old cards.

    Arguably the $400.00 I spent in 1976 for the Mamiya C330 and lens I bought new from the store I was working in while going to university. That is assuming that the value includes the value I've got from that camera since.

    My Omega D6 enlarger with Ilford Multigrade head, a bunch of Rodagon lenses, paper, 20x24 easel, etc. - $250.00 IIRC

    Contax 167MT body with a bunch of useful B & W filters and a nice camera bag - $7.00 at a thrift store. I kept the filters and bag, and gave the camera body to another APUG member who makes very good use of Contax equipment, and was in need of a replacement for her camera body.

    Canonet GIII 1.7 - $10.00 at a garage sale - I've got to get around to those new light seals! (the camera works fine though).

    Olympus Trip 35 - $2.00 at the thrift store. This one is really banged up, but works great. See my most recent gallery photo for the results. I think that this will become my "leave in the car" camera.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    80% of my darkroom equipment (pick-up truck full of stuff) for about US$28 (R205) which included, Omega D5XL, Opemus 5a (both heads) Opemus 2a (which will become a lamp), Nikon and Rodenstock glass, and loads of other things I'm not going to list (trays, tanks, reels, paper, printwasher etc, etc, etc)

    Cameras...well only a YashicaMat (early one with Lumaxar lenses) for about the same (Don't know if was a bargain but it's in mint condition ((or very near mint)) and people in these parts sell them for x3, x4, even x5 as much in worse condition...)

    w/50mm f/1.8 Canon SC Lens
    Condition: appears that it has not been used at all..I'd say: MINT, MINT +.

    It's been a good year acquiring darkroom equipment. While it's not rock bottom prices, I did manage to get a good deal on these items on craigslist:

    Durst CLS450 with L1000 Stand & 3 Nikkor lenses (50mm, 75mm, 135mm) - $350
    Kindermann 6 foot film dryer (can dry 20+ 35mm film) - $30
    Versalab 16x20 print washer - $60
    Saunders 16x20 easel (mint) - $125
    Arkay 16x20 Print Dryer - $25

    Most of what I buy is either 1/2 the average value or 2x.. i get trigger happy sometimes and make some bad deals.
    Lets see.. Nikon FM3a with 40mm f2.8 AIP pancake for $50.. sold the camera, lens is still sitting there, waiting for Nikon to come out with a F-mount pen type camera.
    Canon FDn 50mm f1.2 for $25 (not the L version)
    Olympus OM2n with 50mm f1.4 and 35mm f2 for $100
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.
