The glass is wonderful and appears to have a multicoating on it! I cannot tell for sure but the color of the coating does appear to be of a later variety, and it is defect-free, with no cleaning marks and certainly no scratches. It is clean, and clear, with some evidence of the usual yellowing of the thorium elements, lightened some after a short exposure to some short wave light, and probably destined to go lighter still.
Yes, I know this is twice what the regular AEs go for. If you want the best, this may be for you. Call at the lab for more information (you can get the number here) or email me via the same route.
This lens is SOLD. I hated to let it go, as I am sure I will never see another, but it is going to a good home. Thank you for supporting New55!

Lovely Waterbury Scovill 10" lens in excellent original condition, original surface finish, glass clear and unmarked, and smooth working rotary stops. Comes with screw in mounting flange. I will mount this onto a Pacemaker style lens board for an additional $25 so you can enjoy this antique single element meniscus with your focal plane shutter.
Realistically priced at $300. Shipping to US locations $12 via UPS only.

From California, LA no less, so we know it was influenced by something like grip equipment.
The bellows is actually "new" - I had a new one put on just before I found my Pacemaker.
The Brand View is bound to impress visitors and produces a perfectly good projected image onto film for making of real photographs.
