Escuse the cross post, but if anyone is interested in these cameras I have a couple of lens for them - 135 mm, also a 300 and a close-up attachment.

The 4 items are:
a 300 mm Tokina, f 5.5, in a leather case. The glass looks immaculate, but it needs repair. Something has come loose inside, but it doesn't rattle. It looks almost mint on the outside.
a 135 mm f3.5 Travenar lens in a cardboard case. The glass looks perfect except for some dust. everything seems to function perfectly, and it looks great. All metal, silver, lens covers.
3 Close-up tubes for Exacta. No name, but have QUPSCO written on them.
An book called "Exacta Photography" by Jacob Deschin from 1955.
To be quite honest I have no idea what to ask for these items. I'll take advice from whoever knows something about this stuff. I can't find anything on the internet.
I would like to sell them all together. I was going to give the 300 mm to whomever bought the 135mm.

Exakta cameras are very peculiar contraptions, beautifully engineered, but difficult to use with left hand wind and shutter release. There might be some hard core followers who are still using the Exakta for general photography, but there are few.

Extension tube sets sell for around $20. The 135 mm lens ,if a coated pre-set or automatic model probably is in the $20-25 range. If manual or uncoated, even less. The 300mm, depending on the nature of the problem, could be worth nothing to a user. Any value would be to a collector who only wants to display, but not use.
