It will need some attention, bellow is not perfect, the base is not holding in the front camera base (see photos). There is a piece of black tape on one of the bellow folds. The view finder on the top is not in good condition (not connected to the unit), has mold on the glass, but wanted to keep it with the unit.
The 405mm Lens is in very good condition. The cranks to go back and forth, up and down are working great.
The 2 levers in the back one turns fine the other one is frozen. We will need part of the unit cost up front to avoid any scams. This is a Great Restoration Project, and would look great in a Museum setting. VINTAGE DEARDORF 8x10 ILEXPO LARGE FORMAT VIEW CAMERA LENS BASE" is in sale since Tuesday, June 12, 2018.
