Here are a pair of 35mm cameras from the 50s. The Tower 50 has a clear Cassar 45/2.8 lens and the shutter appears to be working normally. There is a bit of play in the door but the inside is clean. Comes with instructions and other ephemera. The Tower 55 comes with its original leather case but the advance is stiff and the shutter isn't firing. The edges of the Luna 45/3.5 are bent. I'm selling these AS IS and pricing them accordingly.

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BUY:
I am helping to find new homes for a huge collection of vintage cameras. As a professional photographer myself, I am really enjoying getting to know some of these strange and wonderful pieces. The gentleman who assembled this collection chose pieces in good shape and gently cleaned them with compressed air and a soft cloth. Many might benefit from your detailed attention but I’ve left them as is rather than risk damaging them in any way. While in most cases I will not be running film through them, I will check to see that the shutter fires, parts move if they are supposed to, and things appear to be as they should be. If I find any problems, I’ll list them in the description and suggest that the item be used only for display or repurposing However, due to their vintage nature, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, THESE ITEMS ARE SOLD “AS IS” WITH NO GUARANTEE OF WORKING ORDER AND NO RETURNS ACCEPTED UNLESS ITEM RECEIVED IS NOT AS DESCRIBED. Please convo me with any specific questions and I’ll do my best to get you the info.

SHIPPING: OMG, why is it so much???? I don't hide shipping costs in the item price. I want you to know who's getting the money! Canada is quite a bit higher on postage than the US and Canada Post in their wisdom has discontinued their Flat Rate Box program. I have a few of the boxes left but once they are gone, we’re back to regular prices. So the price listed is for my best estimate at the cost of shipping the single item above with a TRACKABLE method. On the plus side, CanPost shipping is usually safe and relatively fast. BUYING MORE THAN ONE ITEM AT A TIME SAVES YOU MONEY because I’ve become pretty handy at packing lots of stuff safely into one box. I do my best to keep your shipping costs at a minimum. As always, once I do the calculations for your finished package, I happily refund any shipping overpayment greater than $2. I am also happy to work with International buyers – please convo me with your shipping address and I’ll give you a shipping cost.
