It wasn't particularly cheap...I paid what I assume was a premium price for one that had new bellows and had been fully restored mechanically. As near as I can tell, Jurgen (aka "certo6") did a perfect job. I expect it to last forever.

Every time I look at it, I wonder how many owners its had. I wonder what the original owner (mid 1950's, I'd guess) was like. What was it used for? What is its story? I would LOVE to somehow track down some of his/her photos! There is something very compelling to me about a camera that is older than I am.

I finally have all my bits and pieces for my enlarging setup together. With any luck, I'll be able to enlarge a photo taken with the Agfa tonight.
