It is fully working and in excellent condition!
I have some spare 120 films, so I'll give it a test and post the results up later.
Welcome to the Camera Collector ! This is truly a nice find I also have one in my collection. Took a look at your flickr page: A lot of excellent pictures, especially the birds, lizards and nature pictures. The lichen pictures sometimes looks like a map from an undiscovered continent
Hi George ! I've had a few Voigtlaender cameras over the years, and have enjoyed every one, they're excellent user collectibles. You got a very nice camera for a nice price. Congrats! Greetings from the Twilight Zone and 4th most depressing city in America ;D
The first camera I bought was a second hand Voigtlander Bessa II with a coupled rangefinder. That was around 1952 from memory I've been trying to find another for my collection but those that come up on Trademe ( similar to Ebay but NZ only) are too pricey for me so far. One day I'll find one - I did get a Retina IIc in immaculate condition for a very reasonable price a couple of weeks ago, $57 which converts to approx GBP28
