    Any info on Ilex Oscillo-paragon please

    Hi folks, does any one have an info on a couple lenses I need to value. They are labled 3 inch f1.9 Ilex Oscillo-paragon mounted in copal press #1's. I'm not familiar with these. I'm trying to find a value to sell them for someone and need a ball park figure. I haven't found anything useful through google. Do any of you folks no what the heck these are for? They came from a pro photog but he was such a pack rat that they could be from anywhere
    Thanks for any help.

    Probably for photographing traces on oscilloscopes.

    They were in those black plastics box camera attachments for oscilloscope screenshot Polaroids, where they would have to cover 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 at about 1:1. Given that and the focal length, they probably won't even do 6x6cm at infinity.

    Prices will vary extremely - a realistic figure is $20-30 (there are plenty of surplus stores which sit on crates full of entire screenshot cameras for prices in that range), but a clash between two clueless bokeh nuts will occasionally drive up the price of some similar lens on that auction site way beyond $100.

    They make good door stops.

    Thanks guys, I guess the shutters are worth more than the lenses. The shutters are in perfect shape
