This just came in, purchased for only 20 euro. No flash sync, making it an III. Serial number puts it in 1953:

Camera has a couple of light dents, nothing serious. What it serious is that the shutter blades are shot; one of them can be seen protruding in the viewfinder.

There is some gunk along the slide rails, and also there is a black spot inside the viewfinder. The viewfinder itself is cloudy.

All of these will be addressed by Don Goldberg of DAG Camera, for that’s the place this camera is going in a couple of days. The job Don is doing to these cameras is par to none.

This is the last add to my collection…for 2015 that is.
