    It's pretty rare that I keep a camera but this one was banged up enough and had a cracked viewfinder front element that it's not worth a ton and I really like shooting with it. The black paint was pretty worn but didn't really look nice with the brassing so I just stripped it off. Will see how the brass oxidizes but I kind of like the way this turned out. I could polish the whole thing but since it's a user it's going to get scuffed up anyway.
