So this is the story: for quite a long time now I've been after a TLR to enter the wonderful world of medium format. My main target were Yashicas, but the other day I bumped into this Rollei at ebay: the price was ridiculous and the seller claimd it was intact... Intact! Ha! I should have suspected, but since I do had found unbelieveable bargains at ebay, I thought this was one of those. To make the story short, it wasn't. Now I'm trying to get my money back, but the seller seems to have dissapeared Well, my intention was just to start shoting medium format, not to do any restoration. But it seems I've been forced to restoration. And, of course, I need some help. First, I would appreciate if you helped me to find out how much this is worth. This is a Rolleiflex, 3.5. The taking lens is a Zeiss Tessar f3.5 75mm. The viewing lens is a Heidosmat f2.8 75mm. I've been trying to do some research and I suspect it could be a Rolleiflex Automat (Model K4B???). The serial number is 1708280. The serial number of the taking lens is 1507959 Now for the INTACT camera... Cosmetically it is just awful (I could post a picture but... I don't know how to post pictures! ) The leather is peeling off, it has rust, mold,... Hopefully, the lenses "just" look dirty, so they might be not so bad, after all. The shutter won't shot, so the lever is stuck (waiting for the shutter to shot). No response at all. The "buttons" to wind the film don't seem to engange. This is, more or less, the situation with this "intact" camera (by the way, this is my first deception at ebay, with a seller who seemed to be most reliable!). The cosmetic part of it is not a problem: I would be very much willing to restore it, buying a new leather kit and giving it a good clean. But the mechanical part of it is another story. I don't have any idea how to put my fingers on this (I do have fixed other cameras, but don't have any experience with TLRs, so I don't know where to start from) I would appreciate to have your opinions: is this something I could try myself? is it worth trying? should I simply sell it to someone who knows how to handle it? In that case, how much wo you think I could get for it?
