Offering a vintage Argus C3 Rangefinder "The Brick" camera set up which includes the following:

1. Argus C3 Rangefinder, 50mm F3.5, including leather case as pictured. Uses 35mm film.
2. Tiffen #502 Series #5 Adapter Ring containing a YL3 yellow filter.
3. Working Sekonic Auto-Lumi Light Meter (with leather case and ring strap).
4. Included is another Adapter Ring base manufactured by Walz/Japan and an extra leather Sekonic ring/strapped small case which held the adapters.

The Argus C3 Rangefinder was manufactured from 1939 to 1957 with a Bakelite body casing and the flash sync attachment holes on the left side of the casing. Uses 35mm film. Includes a YL3 yellow filter for photographing scene with a lot of white including snow.

Condition:

> The camera was well used, also well cared for. There is paint loss on the shutter cocking lever and slight wear on the bakelite surface in the area where the shutter cocking lever and the rangefinder dial is located on the face of the camera.

> The shutter and shutter cocking lever work fine, but I have not tested the camera with film. The door closure/lock is in excellent condition; shuts and locks tight.

> The leather camera case is in good condition; all the seams are intact without fraying; there are some dry areas on the leather strap which I am in the process of conditioning.

> The camera is odor free and shows no sign of being exposed to mold, mildew or damp conditions.
