Item specifics

Type: Standard Maximum Aperture: F8
Brand: Bausch and Lomb
This is a vintage(pre 1900 lens--the patent date on the shutter is 1891)-Bausch and Lomb Rapid Rectilinear F 8lens(sorry the focal lenght is not marked)

The lens is mounted in a beautiful R.O &C Company (beautiful type that i have never seen before)
The shutter is still alive -and fires--but only on the short speeds--i cannot gurantee in any way its good functioning.
The iris is in perfect working order.
The glass looks actually very nice on this 100 years old lens--no fungus,haze or such issues--just a few specs of dust inside and some minor traces of use on glass--(all in all in its condition this should be fully usable like it is now--but a carefull clean--as on any such old lens couldn,t hurt--so i leave the cleaning to you-i,m afraid i will do more bad than good if i do it.
Both front and back elements are easy to unscrew.
Comes with retaining ring.

The only test i could make is put the lens in front of a ground glass--it produces a nice ,sharp image of whats in front of it.

Dear buyers(especially from Asia)--please undrestand this is a 100 years old historical lens--not some modern shiny plastic junk lens you get new ---it cannot look like a new lens--i just about had it with buyers being crazy in expectations about the condition of such old lenses.

I am selling this As Is,as a vintage collectible lens-with NO returns or refunds.If i made a mistake I will try to solve it-i am a reasonable seller--but pls ,try yourselfs to be reasonable buyers.

Priority mail (with tracking)takes 2-4 weeks to arrive ,depending on destination.The shipping price i have is just an estimation--it could be less for inside Europe ,or more for some distant country.Wait for my invoice ,after the auction ends,that will have exact shipping price for your country.
If you have any problems with any of my auctions,pls contact me before leaving feedback-and i will do all in my power to make you happy.

Check out my other auctions for more great photographica products--something new every week.
Happy Bidding.

PS-due to work related problems -there will be a delay of 4-5days in shipping this item-once the auction will be over-sorry about that-but theres nothing i can do about it.
