Two ready to mount Wollaston Meniscus lenses...
The flanges have been truncated so they'll fit smaller boards without bumping into the camera's retaining clips.
A full set of five aperture stop cards, mounting screws, and a cleaning cloth are included.
$69 each + shipping (usually about $12 domestic USPS).

I have a variety of lensboards available if you'd rather not fuss with it.

Reinhold, I am interested in the 135/2.3, would SK Grimes be able to put a shutter on it?!

Oops, I responded to your PM before I saw this post, so I'll repeat my reply for the benefit of the rest of the folks:

Quote:
I'm skeptical that a modern shutter would suit (or even fit) this kind of lens.
Here's a drawing showing the basic configuration: http://re-inventedphotoequip.com/Data.html
Notice that the lens diameter is about 60mm (2.4") diameter.
To maintain the f:2.3 aperture, the shutter's maximum aperture should be the same size (a Copal #3 is too small).

The most common solution is to use a Packard shutter.
Unfortunately, Packards don't have speeds faster than 1/25.
Using neutral density filters and/or slow speed films is one way to get exposures to match a Packard's range.
See my web page on Packards: http://re-inventedphotoequip.com/Shutters.html

If you have a Speed graphic, the focal plane shutter is a perfect match with the 135mm lens.
Quite a few of my customers like my 190mm lens on a Speed Graphic or Graflex camera.

Unfortunately these simple, primitive lenses are not compatible with sophisticated modern shutters.

Thanks for your interest,
Reinhold

Here's a handy nomograph showing how these lenses compare across other film formats...
