Part of Vintage/Antique Camera Collection For Sale


Premium Member
Dear Fellow Camera Enthusiasts,
I’m very new here though I have introduced myself previously. I’m an amature/intermediate photographer, and I also collect vintage and antique cameras. I'm better known for collecting and selling meteorite specimens as well as Japanese Nihonto.

I have decided to “thin the herd” of my camera collection, so I am listing some cameras for sale. Unless otherwise noted the cameras are in excellent working condition and can be used if desired. They were all purchased from prior collectors/photographers or purchased from National Camera Exchange in the Twin Cities area.

I have plenty of photos available for whatever cameras people may be interested in. Most all the cameras are good to excellent cosmetic condition.

Shipping in the USA will be based on the cost of the flat rate priority box needed. International shipping will be based on the estimate from the USPS website. I an usually ship within 2-3d of an purchase though sometimes I am delayed due to my real job.

I will only accept payment via paypal. I am entirely open to offers though some cameras less so than others.

Please respond to bigjohnshea@yahoo.com, or PM here with any interest.

Thank you for looking!
John A. Shea, MD
