I bought this a few years ago and it was in rough condition. After repairing and refinishing the case and cleaning up the brass hardware, and a CLA on the shutter and lens, I still don't know for certain who made it. It was first id'd as a Laack Tropical but it could also be a Minerva. It was originally sold in Italy and Koristka lens and Rulex shutter. It's also plated with real gold. Does anyone recognize it?
Thanks everyone. The thing looked so ratty that it was pretty cheap. I've had it on my old web site and now I'm writing the page for the new site and I just wanted to get it right. If you run into anything similar, please let me know. Ciao from dark and cold Italy. David
