Also I bought a nice No. 4 Eastman Plate camera Series D set, wtih case, plate holders, ground glass back and a camera in good shape. It even has the two screws on the side panels that are often missing. This camera was not made in very large numbers, but still it is offered for sale regularly. But not often in so nice a condition!
What did I buy not? There was a very clean and very rare Falcon box on eBay that sold for US $ 618. I did bid on it, but because I have a Falcon I didn't go very high.
I did not bid on a beautiful No. 4 Eureka with plate holders and ground glass. It went for $ 466. It's good to see that such rare cameras still fetch good prices. See my No. 4 Eureka here, and my No. 4 Zenith here. The Zenith was the UK version of the Eureka and only 1000 were made. It is quite rare now.
