Praktina II A – a Collectors item.

Built 1958/1960 aprox 25.000 pcs

A nice working Praktina II A – about 1959
Only the low shutter speeds do not work so well.
The camera itself is lovely to even in very good condition, because the leatherette is here and there a little loose, its no mint,
but the camera is little used and always been well preserved, as it is shown in the pictures.
Included is also a very beautiful brown leather bag, ditto in very good condition,
and a “waist level finder” and aluminum spacers.
This is a rare camera, and certainly in this state.

I didn’t test this camera with film because, although still in working condition ( except low shutter speeds ) I think this beautiful royal lady comes more to its right in a nice glass display cabinet.
