1960s Zenza Bronica Reversing Lens- valuable or not?

by cbcc777 / October 27, 2017 8:46 AM PDT

I'm trying to help my mom out and get some of her things sold. She has accumulated a ridiculous amount of "stuff" over the last few years some of it looking to be valuable. I have what looks like to be a 1960s Zenza Bronica Lens Reversing Ring in the original red box. I'm not sure if this is worth anything or not. I'm having a hard time finding much information online. It looks like this- Zenza Bronica Lens Reversing Ring

I have other old camera accessories including a Zenza Bronica S2A Film Back Magazine, Zenza Bronica Lens Hood (75 & 100 MM lens), Vivitar Skylight (1A) filter, Vivitar UV-Haze Filter, Vivitar Polarizing Filter, GYachica Electro 35, and a Zenza Bronica Nikkor 105 mm F3.5 with built in synchro shutter.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

It was amazing how little or how much these go for.

My dad dumped a lot of money into some nice 35mm get. It was spotless, had a nice collection of lenses and on Ebay sells for 20 to 25 dollars.

IOW, get to Ebay and see what similar or same goes for. Right now, not as much as you would think for fine gear.

Thanks for the quick response!

Thank you for letting me know. I checked Ebay first and it was hard to find the same item. I guess I'll just list them on there high and see who "bites". If not, I'll try lowering it until I can get it sold. I was hoping for some sort of price to start with. :/

This is why I wrote similar.

I know folk get lost trying to find the exact model but here, you Ebay the stuff and take your best guess as to price. My dad's gear turned out to be pretty plentiful on Ebay so I gave it to someone who was interested. The pain of a buyer complaining about a nick or such wasn't worth it to me.

Ebay here I come!

Thanks for the replies. I'll check out Ebay and see what I can do.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
