I found this in the local market, it was a GAS decision but it went well at the end.
Early/middle model of Bergheil cameras, it has already the frame viewfinder at the middle (not in a corner) but it has not yet the shift knob next to the raise/fall knob and the lens is fixed with usual retaining ring and not with the quick release system of the late models.
Still it has a 15cm f/4.5 Heliar, lens is fine but shutter is broken and it's the next to fix.
Light traps not complete.
Dry and discoloured leather.
Spring lost + broken handle of the front door (right side).
Poor movement in rails/shutter holders.
Opening mechanism sticky.
Close tab for ground glass/plate holders hard to move.
I presume the camera was kept in a very wet environment.
All of them sorted out so far.Before
