    Not to be a complete idiot, but I don't see a problem. I believe the lens is sold in shutter, not in barrel. If so, the shutter will be threaded at the rear and will accept a retaining ring. If yours lacks a retaining ring, many sources can supply one to fit the shutter. I use skgrimes.com. I'm sure retaining rings and flanges are also available from sources in Germany.

    If the lens is in barrel, again, the barrel should be threaded to attach to a retaining ring or flange. Many sources.

    Drill a hole in a Graflex lens board, insert the back of the shutter, attach the retaining ring to the back of the shutter from behind, screw tight.

    I have a 200 Imagon that covers my 8x10 camera. It's a great lens.

    It will definitely cover 4x5, esp. @ portrait distance.

    It is mounted in a 3 shutter. You are correct, it does no really work for 45, especially when you make enlargements as the effect changes with magnification as you make prints. The 200 is optimized for 69, 67 and 66. The 250 is designed for 45 portraits. It also fits directly into a 3 shutter. So, if your camera's lens board can fit a 3 shutter the lens will easily mount in your camera. Just make sure the lens board lock on the camera is working properly.

    I've seen Imagons in barrel.

    thankyou all for help! and sorry for asking not exactly:
    usually I make my lens boards from thick paper, wood or brass and fix lenses via glue tape.
    But here I have a nearly new lens

    and want a bit more perfection
    Unfortunately I do not know a german provider of retaining rings and also did not know what to ask for.
    But I think Danīs answer helps most and I will ask there. (problem when buying in USA is german taxmen making me poor).

    Then contact Rodenstock in Munich and see if they still have the retaking ring or the flange for a 3 size shutter.

    It may be new, or almost new, but that packaging is decades old. When we became the US Rodenstock distributor that packaging had long been discontinued. However, what you have is the grey filter, lens hood and the 3 disks and that was the last set for the Imagon. Before that it also came with a green filter.
