1938 DRP DRGM Rolleicord Ia Type-3 TLR 6x6cm Medium Format Film Camera
with Zeiss-Jena 7.5cm taking lens and Heidoscop Anastigmat 7.5cm viewing lens.
Compur Shutter

- Made in Pre-War Germany
- Excellent Condition

Also known as the Rolleicord Ia Model 3 - K3
It's a rather rare camera considering that it is pre-war and it's
a full German model not made for export. The exposure guide is in German.

I acquired this camera from a collector that purchased it
while stationed in Germany in the late 1940s. He purchased it
from the original owner. By serial number, I place this camera from 1938

***Please check out the detailed pictures of the camera that you
will receive. It's been serviced, inspected and lightly cleaned by me
for this listing.

**********************************************************************************
A new replacement reflex mirror was installed to provide
a bright and clear view on the focusing screen. (see pic # 9).
**********************************************************************************

***The camera has not been tested with film. The lenses look clean and clear.
The focus is spot on and smooth. The aperture blades are in good shape.
The shutter sounds accurate at 1/300, 1/100, 1/50 and 1/25. Slower then that
it's sluggish from lack of use.

Considering that its 80 years old it's in remarkable condition. I believe
that it will be capable of producing quality images but I'm selling it
as needing some restoration and repair to be able to fully use it.

I mail daily and often! It will be packaged to arrive in good condition.

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.

Valuable items will always have insurance added.
