I did not particularly like using the word counterfeit, but my vocabulary isn't supplying me with a more apt term. I just had a Rolleiflex pop up on my internet auction site home page, and clicked on it because the picture looked nice and the bidding is presently 94¢, with 6 days and some change to go. (an obvious new listing). The ad was worded as a "rare such and such model", and I got to thinking... How do I know it's "rare", and not a good chopshop job? After all, Rolleiflexes are prized, especially a good one. To glean a clue as to the origin of the camera I look at the seller name, and see it's some glorified pawn broker. How does he know? Certainly there are MANY chopshop Rolleiflexes out there these days. I'm just not inspired to be trusting that it is a "rare" camera, and not a Frankenstein job. Or am I too cynical? Or just plain out-of-line? Thanks.
