I am selling this 4 x 5" Anniversary Speed Graphic. It has a Graflok back, bellows is almost perfect. The lens/shutter on it is from an ancient Kodak, it covers. Will throw in 2 cut film holders plus a Graphic Film Pack adapter, easily converted for wet plate use. 225 dollars, plus shipping from Illinois and fees.

Sounds interesting. I take it the rangefinder isn't calibrated to this lens? What is the focal length, lowest f/stop, max shutter speed? How are the speeds on the lens shutter? How are the speeds on the focal plane shutter? Any markings/scratches on the ground glass?

The speeds on the front shutter are limited, 1/25th, 1/50th and 1/100th, plus time and bulb.
Ground glass is good, lens is around 127 mm fl, f/7.7 The camera has a back focal plane shutter
also with a whole range of speeds from 1/10 to 1/1000 of a second. Rangefinder has never been tested, a bit cloudy.

Can the back be inserted horizontally or vertically, or just horizontally?

What intrigues me about this camera is that most of the SG Anniversary models had a spring back, so you're one of the lucky few who got a graflok. Also, the focal plane shutter on this thing is amazing, like 24 speed options vs 8 on any of the later models.
