Best Yashica ever!

This is one of the best sets I have ever run across in all of my years of collecting (well OK, it’s in my top ten at least).

Amazing complete set from Yashica. A virtual time machine from 1965.

The Yashica D twin-lens reflex (TLR) is one of the more popular models from Yashica’s line of medium format 120 roll film cameras. The camera is fully functional and looks (and works) as if it arrived from the factory yesterday! The Yashikor lenses are crystal clear.
This set comes complete with its original inner and outer boxes, inside packing materials, all papers, and its original beautiful brown leather case.
By the way, it’s a matching number set – the camera serial number matches the box and papers!

I had a buyer for this set in mind and it sold within 24 hours of my listing it in my online camera shop. It originally came from a collector in England.

Here are a few more boxed sets I was lucky enough to find in my travels.

I’m like a kid on Christmas morning whenever I find these still “new in the box” camera sets. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! – Chris

  1. Stunning finds, absolutely mint! My first SLR was a Yashica FXD, I also brought two lenses and a flash. It took a little getting used too, from memory the zoom was back to front from the school Pentax’s I was used to but I loved that camera. Unfortunately it was stolen from my car, I was so disappointed. It ended my interest in photography for a few years, really until the advent of useable consumer digital cameras arrived. It’s funny, I still trawl local camera selling groups hoping it will show up. Glad I stumbled upon your blog, I’ll have a look about 🙂

      1. It was one of the first major purchases after getting my first job in the ‘80s and took me a while to save for it. After looking at your blog and store, I had a look on ebay, there were only two pretty ordinary samples there, though I probably wouldn’t buy another now.
