Vintage 1950s Nicca Camera BC-III Flash Unit

With original Nicca vinyl zippered case with strap, Nicca
instruction booklet, and Nicca camera bracket.

Overall it looks to be in near mint condition with some
signs of prior use. Please check out the detailed
pictures of the actual set you will receive and if you're
not sure about something please ask questions.

The Nicca BC flash Model III is an all-purpose flash gun.
Although it was designed primarily for use with a Nicca
camera, it can be utilized, with an equally good result,
with all other Leica or Contax-type cameras, and folding
cameras equipped with a lens shutter.

From what I understand, the battery (22.5v Type 015) is
still available.
The flash unit has not been camera tested. It is being sold
for a collection, for display, or for additional parts use. There is
some damage from age visible on the camera bracket (see
the last pic).

***The Nicca camera is not included in this listing.
Only the flash head and handle, the case, the booklet, and
the bracket.

These are very hard to find this nice. The instruction booklet
alone is super hard to find.

I mail everything super fast - often on the same day!

This comes from a smoke and pet free home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does your shop offer combined shipping?

Yes and always! Just let us know and we'll work something out. No need to pay for shipping more than once.

Does your shop accept returns?

Yes but with some minor exceptions. If it was a custom made item we do not accept returns. Good communication before the sale will eliminate returns. Part two... we will gladly accept a returned item (within 14 days) as long as it is returned to us in the same condition as when we sent it to you. Let us know if you are returning something... maybe we can reach an agreement short of a full return. Part three... you will always pay for return shipping.

Will my purchase arrive well packaged?

Always! Carol and I take great care (and pride) in packaging your purchase. We always are mindful of being "green" but often times green doesn't protect your package properly. We have been shipping our items out safely since 2003. We must say however, that we are not responsible for gross mishandling by the carrier(s) or loss of an item. Valuable items will always have insurance added.

How can I contact your shop?

We are on Etsy almost everyday and the best way to get our attention is by starting an Etsy convo. We'll answer you quickly.

Yes we can... our shop and studios are super flexible. Just let us know what you're thinking and Carol can make it happen!

Does your shop accept a best offer?

We think we have everything properly priced but we are here to make a sale and keep our customers happy. Let us know if you want to make an offer on something. I'm sure we will find a way to reach an accord.
