    Any guesses what this lens is?

    It's on a 12x20 camera. If that's a clue.

    Also, what kind of shutter is that??

    I'll have a beer on the first one to guess.

    Turner - Reich triple convertible. Maybe an old Ilex?

    T-R Triple looks right but the shutter looks more like a really old dial set Compur to me.

    You misunderstood. I will drink a beer in your honor tonight. But, don't worry got something GOOD for us.

    That is - if you got it right. And you didn't mention the focal length.

    I can't read the focal length off the scales. Didn't they make one for 11x14 that started at 15 or 16 inches?

    Looks like the No. 6 Turner Reich Triple Convertible for 11x14 ... f-7.5 (all shorter ones in this series were f-6.8) ... 15" combined focal length, 36" front element only, 24" rear element only.

    1910-20 cost in the Ilex General shutter was $173.

    Can be seen at p.4 at this link: LINK

    Ooh, that beer sounds good. A shame I haven't seen it around here.
