  4. Re: Can I get help identifying this lens - Carl Zeiss

    Seems to me it is not in a compur 0 shutter but in a Ernemann 'Automatverschluss' and the serial seems to read 455844.

    Re: Restoring my "new" Agfa Ansco 8x10.

    Since the bellows look fine, the camera will greatly survive; indeed a lovely project to do.
