Scarce Pathescope Princess Projector For Sale

This is the very rare Pathescope Princess 9.5mm cine projector. Dating from the around the 1950's it wasn't very successful commercially and subsequently not many were made, reports say only around 1000 - 1500 were ever produced and they were made for the Uk market only.
It's complete with the legs and transformer and film spools, plus some other attachments. I will upload more pics and full details shortly.

The second picture shows everything included in the sale, (except the filmswill be removed from the spools).These will be available, along with some others in another listing. There is what looks like a slide carrier turret ? Not sure if this is meant for this projector but it did come with it. Also some brass and chrome collar thingys
As you can see the wiring has been cut. The projector came from an antique sale house and it's common practice for them to cut wiring from vintage electrical goods for health and safety reasons. It also avoids them having to do electrical tests etc. I thought about having a go at rewiring but I'm not proficientat carrying out this kind of work so I cannot give any guarantees about working order. Please offer with this in mind. The projector certainly looks pretty tidy and feels solid for what is a circa 60 yr old item. I cant see any signs of damage or abuse, but again I'm not experienced with these things. I urge anyone to ask questions and I'll do my best to confirm anything.
The lens does have a small crack in the rear element which I'll photograph tomorrow and upload a picture.
There are two small rubber belts in place but obviously I cant guarantee their proper function. There was another larger spring type belt but this is damaged and broken.
The two original Pathe spools look to be okay but there is a fair bit of peeling paint and a little surface tarnish to the metal.
Lots ofenquiries about overseas shipping which will be answered soon. I always pack exceptionally well but this usually increases the volume of the packet and thus the price aswell.It's impractical to offer returns on an item of this nature so please bear this in mind.
Many thanks

Pic uploaded showing damage to the lens rear element. My feeling is that this probably wouldn't affect projected image but no guarantees.
Trying to read the name on the lens.... it looks like 'COLOTAR' ?
