    Voigtlander & Sohn lens

    I recently found a Voigtlander & Sohn, Heliar, 42cm, 1:45, lens No. 186626, that is mounted on a slightly larger piece of wood. What was this lens used for? Were they typically mounted on pieces of wood, and where can I found more information concerning the worth of this lens?

    Check e**y for completed listings - using item title Heliar 360mm (may not have been a 420mm recently). Or google!

    Here is my Heliar Lens Article

    http://antiquecameras.net/heliarlenses.html

    Heliar values sell over a WIDE range on ebay...typically from $ 300-650 for barrel lenses with flanges - depending on condition, supply and demand etc... coated lenses bring more as do minty examples... here is a recent sale of a 360mm http://cgi.ebay.com/Voigtlander-Heli...item53de0a3064

    The "PIECE OF WOOD" sounds like a lens board. What are the dimensions of the wood?
