    Default EK II purchase from 1975

    Some of the items I've posted lately for comment have been shot down so I thought I would post this little beauty to make me feel better! I purchased this EK II at the Gold Nugget flea market on the border of PA and NJ back in 1975. If I recall correctly, I argued a little bit about the price with the dealer ($25) but he said find a nicer example. Remember, I was 15 years old and $25 was a lot of money! I hardly ever see the little brown paper keeper on other EK II examples out there so I feel this is primo example. Neil H.

    Looks like a 'Klein & Quenzer, Oberstein' - maker '65' envelope.
    Is it marked on the ring?

    ( $25.00 in 1975 was probably ok )



    Regards, Steve.

    It looks like a nice set Neil.
    The envelope is marked for Jakob Bengel whose PKZ number is '44'.
    Can you post close ups of the EK to be sure the cross and packet match please?

    Interested to see what the suspension ring has stamped on it too!

    Unfortunately, my camera cannot get in that tight - but under a magnifying glass it looks to be a 44. NH.
