Message Detail:
Yeah I DID get it for that price! I was STUNNED that I did! Even if there is something missing, I figure I could get it repaired for a lot less than it's worth.
I have spoken to other folks who had simular descriptions of not being able to focus it and have found that they just weren't doing it correctly. The fact that he got a clear miniture image through the wrong end made me think that the lenses were at least not broken and pretty clear. It looks like someone polished it at some time and I assume the wood/leather/baleen has come off the barrel. That's easy to replace as well as the missing shutter. Whatever shape it ends up in I think I got a good deal on an actual correct period piece. Thanks for the info Dave!
