I think this is a VINTAGE MINOLTA SEMI 1 FOLDING CAMERA 75mm f3.5 PATENT NIPPON CROWN Shutter: Crown ( T, B, 1/5,1/10,1/25,1/50,1/100,1/200 ) Lens: Coronar Anastigmat Nippon ( f=75mm 1:3.5 )
The exterior cover is missing, all metal exterior shows. Much wear and use. One knurled thumbscrew cover missing on one side. The bellows on outside are a little tattered at creases. I do belive the lense is good. RARE and UNUSUAL VERSION.
THE CAMERA HAS A 75mm f3.5 CORONAR ANASTIGMAT NIPPON LENS AND A PATENT NIPPON CROWN SHUTTER THIS WAS THE LAST VERSION BEFORE CHANGING TO THE SEMI 2 MODEL THE SHUTTER FIRES Semi Minolta II, lens Nr.64470
