Werra 3 with Tessar 50mm F 2.8

Sr. NR.: 369714


This is a camera in a nice condition, with some normal traces of usage.

It has been tested and its works fine.

Aperture times sound acurrate, working good.

Shutter and aperture blades are clean and working properly.

The viewfinder has several small dust particles inside, still acceptable sight. With range finder inside.

The lens has no fungus or scratches, nice condition. As an used lens may have micro dust particles inside.

I would say that this is a camera in a nice working condition, with some normal traces of usage.

Notice that the hood is missing.
