Minty!

I'm just impressed they think this poor thing is worth selling - I can't imagine there's much in the way of spares that could be rescued.

Wonder what happened to it?

I can't think of anything that would sell for $4.27 that's worth going through the rigamarole of eBay, packing, and driving over to the post office.

Pulled that puppy off the bottom of a lake, where it's been stored since new.

Best,

That thing would go for at least twice that price in a "junktique" store here locally.

Its remarkable that someone would put that rust heap on a lacquered or polished tabletop.

Yes, it's such a stupid term (in the context of camera condition, at least). Something is either "mint", or it is not. And if it really is "minty" then that is a worry, for completely different reasons.

What they forgot to mention, is that was Vivian Meyer's camera. She alternated between this one and her Rolleiflex!

Can I hear $5000?
