Hi, Actualy bought this for a friend but have been looking at it and wondering what all the stuff is. It came in a large metal and wood box that says Graflex on it and flash,bulbs and allot more. Paid 150 for it because my friend collects cameras. It has a couple of lenses (Ilex) and a Grafmatic film holder 45 and a graphic film pack adapter. It also has a Graflex optar 4.7 135mm lens on it (also marked as wolensak graphex,kalart rangefinder. Any other questions just ask and I will see. Where is the SN or how do you pull the back off or open the back? sounds like it has roll film in it to has winding knobs not sure
Any help greatly appreciated. Also the leatherette is rolling off on the corners too.
Thanks again
