    If the ground glass must be shimmed to correct for the lack of a Fresnel in a back made for the Fresnel, the shim thickness is not exactly the same as the thickness of a Fresnel. Physical and optical thickness of transparent material differ.

    I wouldn't return the camera because it'll cost half its value to ship it back. If you buy another graphic view, you'd be better off keeping this one for spare parts.

    Trimming down a ground glass yourself is easy and cheap. The fresnel stuff is confusing because the designers were confused.

    I'm not worried about trimming and grinding the ground glass, but dealing with shimming and replacing, or not, the fresnel is more than I'd bargained for. I just found a Toyo (Omega) 45E for the same price that looks like it's in great shape, so will probably go with that camera instead.

    So you're returning the Graphic View?

    Haven't decided yet. I may be able to borrow a view camera for those portions of the class requiring more moments than my Speed Graphic can handle. More money for film in that case!
