marked on barrel. It offers provisions for Waterhouse stop (not included) and
push/pull focus at A & B marked points. Front/rear glass
diameters are 45mm wide and easily
covers formats to 8x6-inch. The brass barrel shows normal wear and ageing with
tarnish in places – but free from dents. However, the lens optics is

long (including hood depth of 20mm).
