Thanks, Bob for your kind comments. I took long hours and great pains to restore it. It was in fairly good shape to begin with, I just wanted a camera that was easy to tote around, without the superfluous external appendages. This camera would be ideal for the starting out LF'er, both from a cost standpoint and flexibility standpoint. The front standard has rise, shift, and tilt capabilities. It is much more adaptable than, say, a Crown Graphic (also a very nice camera in its own right). And, it looks good doing it. I am only selling it because I needed more flexibility in the rear standard. Have a good day.
