    I'm looking for a very worn Nikon F (or possibly F2) to use as a prop for a folio I'm currently shooting. It is supposed to belong to a war photographer, so should look like it has been dragged all over south-east asia - brassy, scratched and dented. It doesn't need to work, but should look complete and have a finder. You'd think it would be easy to find a junk F, but almost all of the hundreds of Fs on eBay are pristine/rare/overpriced and while KEH has a few options in a more realistic price range they might still be too nice for my needs. Does anyone have anything sitting in their junk box that might do? Lens not necessary, but if you have a broken 50 that fits that would be a bonus.

    I live in Australia so be aware that this will probably involve overseas postage and PayPal.

    If you have a suitable relic please PM me, or email paulewins(at)optusnet(dot)com(dot)au
