I found this beauty in a box of my wife's photo stuff (while searching for her film Nikon). She doesn't remember it at all...138329
the label reads "WIZARD SR. Manhattan Optical Co. N.Y." The glass is clean; the B&L double-pumper shutter is patented 1891 and amazingly enough still works, although the aperture (U.S. 5-128) is stuck wide open. Neither of the lensboards fit any of my cameras so haven't tried it yet, but looks like it might be about 10" focal length.
Anyone (Mr. Galli?) have any ideas about lens design, quality, or anything else?138328138330138331
