General Condition: 

The body is in good condition, with minor signs of previous use.

There is a ding on the back door near the hinge, which is only cosmetic. (can barely be noticed on picture 7).

 

The original leatherette covering is in good condition. 

The focussing glass in good condition. The focusing hood works great as it should.

Both  lenses have some light cleaning scratches on front element. No fungi, haze or separation for what we can see, still some tiny  marks commensurate with the age. This will not affect the quality of the pictures.

The Synchro-compur shutter has been re-adjusted and now works very well at all speeds, even at slow speed. 

The self timer is operational, as is the flash connection.

both side panels has been opened.

The cranking system  has been fully disassembled to be cleaned up, lubricated and tested.

The complete focussing sytem has been disassembled for cleaning, re-lubrication and adjustement.

We fully checked the camera and all movements are  fine.
