[This is a relisting.  The purchaser reneged.  Please do not bid if you do not intend or cannot pay.  Thank you for looking at the beautiful Contax IIa.]

This auction is for a Zeiss-Ikon Contax IIa 35mm rangefinder camera, its Zeiss Ultron Sonnar f1/5 50mm lens and with a clear filter and (curiously) a Leica front cap, a leather case missing the front Contax badge, the Contax Auto-Up close-up attachment, a self-timer, and a manual.  Except for some light brassing on the film advance and the front of the rangefinder window and some light scratches on the bottom plate, this camera is in excellent shape.  It functions perfectly, with only the vertical rangefinder adjustment perhaps a micron off...see the tricky-to-obtain viewfinder view.  Aperture and focus are smooth.  Lens is clear as are aperture blades, with some dust on the filter.  Shutter curtains look great. Timing seems fine. The serial number of the body places it in 1952 or 1953.  The case and manual are in good shape but not perfect...I would not trust the straps, of course.  

I acquired this via an auction from a dealer in Oregon just recently.  It is a real jewel.  In fact, that's why I am selling it...it is too nice for me!  I had a similar situation with an Exakta VX1000 a few years ago.  Just too nice for my clumsiness.  I am giving it up before I might bump it or something else silly...my sole motivation.

The camera and camera case have the name "J.B. Jacques" on them.  I have a suspicion that the camera may have once belonged to the British writer and photographer J.B. Jacques (a pseudonym), but this is just a suspicion.

I ship anywhere in the world for which I can acquire a tracking number but once its in the mail, it's no longer my problem.  Shipping in US via priority mail will range from $8 - $20.  Shipping overseas priority mail probably around $37 give or take.  I want my customers to be happy but understand I am not a retailer just a hobbyist and amateur photographer, so I appreciate your patience.
