-Serial #3577591
-An all original and untouched Apo-Lanthar 105mm f4.5 Bessa II camera outfit
-Desirable Lanthanum glass
-This is THE Apo Lanthar 105mm f4.5 set to have. It is truly complete and untouched. It has the proper f4.5 shutter, the proper 4.5 depth of field scale dial and all. It is also with the RARE original Bessa II box, leather case, 310/37 shade and leather case, RARE filter set with its original case and camera strap.
-This is also the LATER Version Bessa II with the built in show on the top. The early version had a flat top plate with no shoe and you would buy an accessory attachment to slide the shoe accessory on the top plate ( which usually marked the top plate ). This is a DESIRABLE later version Bessa II. Truly a great find with the APO LANTHAR 105mm lens.
-WOW, truly complete, in great condition and all original! This is the first time in 20 years that I am coming across such a set.
