    This is the worst example of living in an alternate universe I ever saw.

    Oooh... Let me go to my bank and arrange a loan for this camera! Sheesh, can't believe someone offered him more than he's asking.

    i dont believe that statement, nobody who knew enough about cameras to pay that much for an old one would offer that much on that camera

    Yeah, probably a 'white lie' so he can get what he's asking for. Now, on the other side of the coin, there are some rare Kodak folders, I owned one a few years ago, a 1898 Folding Kodak Bull's Eye No.2 with cherry wood bed in mint condition. I sold it to a Kodak curator who had his own collection and yes, it was near the price this guy is asking. But... this particular camera is not worth more than $50 in good condition.

    I don't think it's a 3a... But none the less I bought a c3 for the lens once. It was a more modern one to be sure with a bauch and lombe lens for about twenty five bucks including shipping.

    Some of these old lenses are great for shooting retro stuff, including portraits. I think all those bodies are made of alum and covered with leather. Not the early wooden ones both exposed wood and those covered with leather but this whole 3 series of camera.

    yeah, sorry you're right i guess it is a c3, but we can all agree, still asking WAY too much

    Dimitri, I'm surprised that you haven't sent him an email to verify the rarity of his folder just to screw with him! :lmao:
