This IIa is the nicest one that I've seen in my travels. It has only a few very minor scratches and no dents or dings. This particular camera was produced between 11/53 and 9/54, according to the serial numbers. The lens is in great condition, but the diaphragm needs to be lubed, as it is very difficult to turn.
The blades do move now as shown in the two front facing pictures of the camera. The shutter speeds appear to be normal, as much as my ear of 50 years of photography can tell. The film advance and self-timer work as well.If you have any questions or would like to see more pictures, please just ask.
