-Body shows modest signs of use but no major marks on the wood. Clean overall!
-Movements are smooth and working well
-I can't verify the accuracy of the shutter since the cloth curtain does have signs of use and does need to be replaced.

A very attractive camera. Beautifully constructed with a very nice set of orange lined bellows. Teak Tropical wooden camera with a stunning Tessar 210mm lens. Typical Zeiss quality and procession. A joy to have and admire. Very nice!
