What a beauty!!! This camera shows wear, especially the bellows (note all the hand sewn fixes, knotting, patching). The cherry wood and brass are in good condition. This piece is great for parts or a collector's display. The film carriers that are included with this camera are all 5"x7", but the camera also shot up to 8"x10". It has an upgraded "Omnar" all brass lens marked ROJA vorm Emil Busch Rathenow. The Busch Anastigmat Series 2 F 5.5 No. 4 F 10" Pat. May 10, 1904.
