Its in used, but excellent good!!! Condition, both outside and inside are almost 100% clear, almost 100% brand-new feeling!!! Outside: No any deep or soft scratches!!! , only some very minimal black paint missings on the rear plate of the camera. The top plate is perfect, no any scratches, shine & nice, no damages or other faults. The base plate is also in very good condition with some very minimal soft scratches on it outside (please check the pictures) and some very minimal paint missings inside. The rapid lever, the release button, the shutter speed dial, the self-timer & the film counter are also perfect & 100% working! The film counter reverts to its zero position when the take-up spool is removed for reloading! Shutter speeds (including long speeds & B-exposing) seem to me accurate. The viewfinder is clear, no damage, no internal dust, only a little bit stain in the center area (as I see, therere only 2-3 small spots). In the viewfinder with “covered window”, you can see this small 2-3 pcs black spots in the inner rangefinder box, it’s dust only, not fungus I think. The big rectangular box is perfect, bright and sharp, the small one is also perfect, but its right side is a little bit faded as you see. It doesn’t affect on camera’s working or composing, focusing, etc. It’s more than a 60-year-old camera, so it’s in very good condition, but not 100% perfect. The rangefinder is working & accurate. The frame lines fit to 50 / 90 / 135mm lens. Inside: The frame window is clear & black, no paint missings, the shutter is in good condition, therere no pins or disruptions, only a little bit spotted as I see. Theres a micro-sized black spot on the shutter on the rear side, but its not a hole!!! , tested with strong light. No affecting on lens working! Its an old and used camera, but its in very good condition for its age!!! Camera bodys serial number is: 784027, so its made in early 1955!!! Its a double-stroke (DS) edition of this camera, so two short lever movements are needed for correct film transport & shutter winding! Accessories: The leather soft case is in very good condition for its age, but the strap is in poor condition, no disruption, but fragmented a little bit! The paper box is in very good condition. The user manuals are in used, but good condition. You will get exactly what you see. Further details, reviews can be found on many internet sites. Terms & conditions: IMPORTANT!
