This 1946 Graflex Miniature Speed Graphic Camera has been examined and tested and is in near mint condition. It is being offered with all the stuff you see here in the pictures.
All of this stuff is in very good condition overall! Considering the age of the items, I am really amazed...The box is the most worn item and I suspect with a bit of cleaning, it would be very nice.
You are getting the carring case, the wooden folding tripod, 4 packs of film, many wooden film holders, the hot flash with two hoods, a light meter with case, the original manuals and some documentation...and the camera! Some other items not listed are also included...
