Of course this was the eBay transaction that there were problems with! But everything worked out and the Medalist and all of the accessories finally arrived. The shutter blades closing are a bit erratic so I am going to keep working it to see if that fixes it, if not I will have to find someone to give it a good CLA.
The (N)ever ready case:
The Accessory Back, for sheet film, film packs and plates. Also one of the Kodak film packs with two negatives of Kodak Super-XX film left.
And the instruction manual. To me the most amazing thing about it is the registration card is still attached!
Also included was one of the Heiland Research Corporation's flash units like this one on Flickr. www.flickr.com/photos/48637143@N03/6074460344/ The way the tube attaches to the base is not the same as the one pictured but the base is definitely for a Medalist as there are two pins that position the camera in place. Also included were numerous filters and adapters, some for the camera and some not, and 4 of the old style dial calculators. 1) Kodak Outdoor Exposure Guide 2) Flash Kodaguide 3) Snapshot Kodaguide 4) Kalart Synchro_Sunlight guide Of course all of the guides are for film no longer available but still a nice addition to my collection.

I posted my Medalist rant under "Show Us" because I did not know where to put it. Not the best location.
I don't think SLR is the best spot though.
How about Range Finder Cameras?
Perhaps both postings could be moved there.

I know and have been preparing for this for awhile. I have been bringing home from work large Zip Loc style bags that we get equipment in and usually then just throw away. Each bag is big enough to fit my Nikon F, with the Photomic Finder and a Vivitar 70-210mm Macro/Zoom lens. So in the bags, then into plastic boxes with snap lids then into a closet in a room that is not having work done to it. Once the door closes I will seal it with Duct tape and hope for the best!
