These Midland marked cameras are exceptionally rare and very desirable. Very few made in midland from the full production and even fewer were marked MIDLAND.
I have only seen a handful of these MIDLAND cameras over the last 20 years. They are exceptionally rare and a must have for any collector or enthusiast.

Very nice since this is a vintage untouched camera but this is working well.

I can not stress the RARITY of this camera. This is a great deal in comparison to a recent sale of a MIDLAND IIIF and what is on the market.
