    Zeiss Ikon Ikoflex Value

    I have a Zeiss Ikon Ikoflex recently and was curious what the value might be. I have identified it as a Ikoflex IIa (late) 855/16 from some google searching. I also have a prism finder and 2 Ikoprox filters. Does any of this stuff have value? ebay seems full of ridiculously overpriced ikoflex stuff, I see someone has the prisim listed for $200 and someone has a camera listed for over $1000! What would be reasonable for a used condition camera like this?

    Asking price is meaningless. Solds are the only thing that counts.

    Things don't have intrinsic values, they are worth what you can get for them.

    true on both counts, but in a global market most things have a generally established fair market price. I was hoping some of you guys who are undoubtedly more knowledgeable then I of the object in question could offer some insight. I realize there is no hard line, but this also isn't a piece of art were talking about, there should be a general market price that is reasonable for this camera. I am having trouble finding many solds on ebay and it seems keh doesn't carry much of this stuff either so no ballpark from them. Maybe it's worthless, but I wanted to check before I sell myself short.

    If you have an ebay account, try searching for completed listings. Looking at Zeiss Ikon Ikoflexs - ignoring make and condition - it looks like a spread between $50 and $300. I'd assume $50 is for parts and $300 near mint for an in demand make. I didn't look at all of the ads though, those are just assumptions.

    Edit: Ah, I missed your last comment. Quick google search showed stores selling them for ~$180 so I'd expect individual sales to generally go for less. I imagine the condition of the camera could cause a substantial swing in price as to the point where refinding these numbers would be hard.

    Remember that those equipped with Tessar usually sell for 50% - 100% more than those with Novar (in the same condition).

    I paid $45 for a nice Tessar one about 5 years ago. I consider it to be a great bargain.

    I paid a bit more for a coated Tessar version- about $75. But it's in perfect condition.
