This is THE TOP OF THE LINE 3.5F 12/24, WHITE FACE, last batch camera set. Not only the best of the best but also in MINT condition. I have seen many Rolleiflex cameras over the years but this is BY FAR one of THE NICEST cameras I have had the pleasure of coming across. 
Matching late style SILVER double box and inner cardboard fittings. Instructions, papers and all. Very VERY nice. Pictures don't do justice, The camera is outstanding in the flesh

This is also a very LATE #, second last batch. TOP OF THE LINE Model 4/5. Really something special!

Cosmetics 9.5+/10
-No dings, dents or marks
-Black finish shows no wear on the body. Only one small pin spec on the waist level but insignificant
-Leatherette all intact, crisp and as new.
The case shows its age as a natural grain but the camera itself is remarkable!

Mechanics 9+/10
-The camera functions are working normally
-Shutter dial,aperture dial, focus and advance are all smooth2
Amazing that a camera of this age and condition is working so perfectly. 
VERY NICE!

-Focusing screen is bright and clean
-Mirror is bright and clean

This is by far the NICEST Rolleiflex 3.5F camera I have ever seen. I have had NEW 2.8F PLATIN and AURUM granted they don't get used, but for a 3.5F to be like this is amazing. 
TOP OF THE LINE 12/24, WHITE FACE, box, paper, condition, working and all.

Once in a while, you see something and you just say to yourself "WOW" this is special. For a production camera and being the PINNACLE of its brand, maybe one of the most iconic vintage cameras, and to see one like this is really spectacular. 
I feel in love the moment I saw it.
I know you will too!
