Please read the item description below very carefully.
This is a Busch Pressman Model 4C 6x9 camera. The body is very good with minor signs of use and a little dust. The top viewfinder has a paralax adjustment on it. The side range finder was made by Hugo Meyer & Co. There is a little rust on the metal guard over the side range finder. The lens WAS a Rodenstock Heligon 80mm f2.8 on a Compur shutter until someone disassembled it. One of the elements is chipped on one edge and that may have been the motivation. There is a bag of lens parts. I have no idea if they are all there or not.
!!! Please do not pay until after you have received an eBay invoice !!!
Below are answers to frequently asked questions. It’s a lot of information, but if you ask me a question that is answered here, I’ll know you didn’t read it. J
Questions: If you have a question about an item, special shipping requests, etc., send them via the link near the bottom of the listing page, where it says “Ask a question”. These come into my Messages Inbox, others do not.
Condition: I give the best and most complete condition description that I can. I don’t always know as much about the item as I should, and sometimes flaws are hidden and impossible to see, but I can’t research or test everything, especially when starting auctions at very low prices. If it isn’t clear, ask questions. Sometimes a question asked will create a correction, add information and/or a photograph to the listing. If you are bidding on, or watching the item, check often for new information.
Returns: If you feel that the item you get is not as described in the listing, contact me immediately and we will resolve the issue. PLEASE NOTE: Items sold “AS IS”, “Not Working” or “For Parts”, are not returnable.
Payment: Do not pay until you get my invoice through eBay. I usually send the invoice within 24 hours of the auction end. I expect payment within 4 days after you receive the invoice. If you can’t pay that fast, let me know so we can work out an arrangement. I normally ship within 1 business days after receiving payment. Personal checks or other forms of payment are acceptable, but the item will not ship until they have cleared. Let me know if that is how you are paying. My bank charges $15 to process a foreign bank check, so I will have to pass that charge to the buyer.
Combined Shipments: I will combine items into one shipment to save shipping costs. You need to let me know when you are bidding on several items. When you have finished bidding, you will request an invoice, and the invoice will be sent for all items won plus the shipping costs for all items.
Shipping Costs: I use the least expensive method of shipping I can. First Class and First Class International is usually best for small and light items, Priority Mail and First Class International is good for larger and heavier items, and Flat Rate Priority Mail is good for heavier items that will fit in the flat rate boxes. Shipping items overseas that sell for more than $400 and/or weigh more than 4 pounds must be shipped via Priority Mail International. Express Mail gives more tracking information, but is more expensive and only used if requested. You should be able to calculate the shipping cost on the listing page, but if you can’t, you need to give me your address, including zip or postal code so I can accurately calculate it.
International Shipments: I will ship to any valid address, in any foreign country allowed by eBay and the US Government. Some foreign addresses contain too many characters to be valid for the shipping label. Please make sure your address has no more than 40 characters per line. Expect up to six weeks for delivery. Some items I am not allowed to ship overseas. It is a violation of eBay Policy to change the value of the items on the export documentation.
Feedback: I leave positive feedback as soon as I get payment. I have a very high feedback rating (some people can’t be pleased no matter what you do). I appreciate hearing from you after you receive your item so I know you are satisfied. If there is a problem, give me the opportunity to fix it before leaving negative feedback.
Sales Tax: Residents of New York State will be charged 8% sales tax.
If you have read all of this - THANK YOU. You have saved both of us time, money and headaches.
