IT IS BEING SOLD AS IS
Camera is in good shape, as seen in the actual detailed photographs; it has never been dropped or otherwise abused.
Yashica introduced the YK in 1959. This camera is clearly decended from the first model and features a modest Copal Shutter.
The YK has the same Yashinon ƒ 2.8 aperture 45mm focal length lens as available on the YL and shares the same 46mm accessory thread.
The range of focus is from 1 meter [39.3696 inches] to infinity. It features a convenient handle on the focus ring.
The marked shutter speed settings are 'B' 1/30 1/50 1/100 and 1/300th top speed. There are no detents at these settings.
Sharing the same lens as the YL allows the Auto Up Adapter shown here to be used on either camera as well as the later YM [Minister 1 & model D]. This enables the camera to focus close-ups within a range of 45cm [18 inches] and 80 cm [32 inches].
The adapter attaches to the prime lens with a set screw which compresses a spring steel sleeve which grips totally around the lens.
The sprocket release is mounted on the base of the camera exactly as in the YL, and is marked 'A" and "R' for Active & Release, at both ends of it's rotation.
The back view shows an ASA dial ranging from 10 to 1600 as well is the DIN speeds, which can be set to remind the user of the film that is loaded in the camera. This is visible even when the camera is mounted in the case through a circular plastic port .
As seen in the rear top view, the focal plane of the film is designated with the symbol -o- to enable very precise focussing of close objects.
Please, read the description and examine the photographs carefully.
I sell quality new or nearly new tested merchandise. Whether or not an article is new, I use the same care inspecting, detailling or restoring it, as I use preparing the listing you are reading now. My buyer's emails and feedbacks attest to the cleanliness of my items down to the smallest nook and cranny.
Rarely, an item may be sold for parts or rebuild and would be clearly described as such.
Please email me if you have any questions.
I value every single buyer. All transactions, however small, get the same attention.
I expect to hear from the buyer within 48 hours.
Unless I use a flat rate, I do my best to charge as exact shipping as possible. I will round up to the next dollar or two to cover calculator errors, delivery confirmation, gas and sundries.
Flat rate charges may be less or more than actual shipping costs.
Delivery confirmation will be bought for items over $15.00.
I cannot be responsible for lost or damaged uninsured shipments.
Because shipping facilities may be as far as 40 miles (64 km), I only ship once a week usually from Vermont for U.S. bidders and from Canada for Canadians and I do combine shipping for savings whenever possible.
The amount of care I take packing is also at par with the quality of my merchandise and the professionalism of my listings.
Buyers from outside the United States need to email me as early as possible, about methods of payment and shipping rates. (PLEASE CONFIRM CALCULATOR RATES WITH ME)
FEWER SELLERS ACCEPT TO SHIP OVERSEAS because of the amount of time it takes for the paperwork and knowledge of shipping options and laws. Also some international buyers do not email before bidding, yet will hold the seller responsible for lateness of delivery, or worse ask Paypal for a chargeback. I will provide you with the date, custom, tracking & insurance receipt numbers. Keep them handy (do not delete) as you may need to contact your local Post Office with this information in order to find out the date of delivery. About 6 to 8 weeks from the shipping date, if LOCAL INVESTIGATION concludes that your item has been lost or damaged, contact me then, I would file a claim with the US Postal Service and an investigation would be initiated by them.
USPS WILL NOT INSURE SOME INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENT METHODS AND DESTINATIONS, I cannot be held responsible if there should be losses or damage in such cases.
I charge export papers fees for bidders outside North America. IF NEEDED, YOU MUST FIND A FRIEND FLUENT IN ENGLISH OR FRENCH.Fast and efficient communication is essential.
BIDDERS ARE INDIVIDUALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING THEIR LOCAL TAXES AND sorry, I DO NOT PROVIDE INACCURATE INVOICES.
Please make sure that you want the item and have the means to pay for it now ( include shipping ).

Please read these sample comments and POSITIVE FEEDBACKS
There are several things that struck me about this transaction.....incredibly well packed item, precise and prompt communication, mint-condition item and a positive overall experience. Incidentally, I checked the signal generator with a Hewlett Packard digital frequency counter. It is dead-on accurate, unusual for an antique analog generator. This has been a distinct pleasure.
