    That is a Zenit 3(C) using the Cyrillic alphabet. And $3.00 is an absolute steal. It is a 39mm thread mount, but I don't believe Leica LTM lenses will work on it. I once bid on a black one with white lettering, it was the prettiest little thing, and the only black one that I have ever seen.

    Stupidest thing seen on Ebay are UK sellers refusing to sell abroad (hey just schtik the parcel in british mail and write a foreign address, what is so hard???)

    They invariably end up selling their stuff for £2.25 while stinking rich but very ugly furinners would be happy to pay £25....
    It will eventually sink in, on both sides of the Big Pond!

    Oh yeah on topic : I finally managed to blow life into an old Voightlander Vito B, had to put in a test film to get the FILM to get the shutter working, and after a few test exposures even the slow speeds are working.
    Got it cheap from UK......

    Just as stupid as the US sellers who state US only.

    They're supposed to do that. That's why you can get them cheap from sellers who don't think they work!

    Yeah, I wanted to pick up 3 neg carriers from a seller this past week - not willing to ship to AU. They've just relisted because they didn't sell; still not willing to ship OS so I'll have to look elsewhere.

    On the other hand, I've asked sellers if they'll ship OS and they've been happy to do so - just didn't state it in their original listing - maybe didn't think to or just easier not to bother.

    Sure, it's their prerogative, but really does limit the sales pool somewhat . . . . . .

    Steve.
    Actually, its a pain in rear to ship overseas from the US for anything heavier than 13 ounces (first class limit). You need customs forms signed in triplicate, a special clear window (that customs can remove the slips from) and there is no tracking once it leaves the country.

    I do get better prices selling overseas, but I prefer to ship in the US when I can.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    When you've been screwed enough times by foreign sales you may not think it is so stupid. Selling on eBay poses many risks for sellers. What is "stupid" is when people criticize what they don't understand.

    What is really stupid is judging a whole country by the actions of a few of its citizens. There is an equal percentage of bad sellers in every country and it is probably a very low figure.
