Jason’s workshops notes:

Excellent condition, early manufacture year and original black cover extremely good for age of camera so have kept this original. Internal workings good and apertures moved freely within range and red flag popped up… still stripped and serviced to prevent future problems. Viewfinder also required tightening which is a common problem easily solved. Internal lens parts and screws in great condition. Good “honest”camera that shows no signs of being opened up before.
