closed Vintage camera set : Canon VT Deluxe + 50mm F1.2 Canon Lens

Recommended Posts

Let me try some luck here before putting it on the Flea Bay.  I'm Guessing most of you have some kind of a hobby aside from stacking PMs - one of mine was and still is photography and collecting vintage photographic equipment.
I'd like to sell the set as a whole - or exchange it for Bullion be it gold or silver at your going rate against my proposed price. I have feedback on eBay and Chrono24 which i will send via PM per request.
My asking price including shipping within EU and North America is 1300€ .
If trade is to be made - I'm shipping first - only to established members. Anyone else - we'll use an escrow service.

Item description:

Up for sale is a perfect example of a Canon VT Deluxe with the magical Canon 50mm f1.2 lens. Both the lens and camera are cosmetically and mechanically in perfect condition.
Camera body, camera case and lens are <EP> marked which in correlation with the social security number engraved on the back and the name of the owner embossed on the case make a nice compelling story about a US Veteran. 
The Camera had a sticker on it stating US SIGNAL CORPS ( marks of which can be seen on the case and camera bottom) these were removed while the camera was in for a CLA in 2012-2013. 
I've done some digging around a few years back and it seems the owner - Kenneth Perry was indeed a Korea War veteran and had his name published in two books portraying the photographs made of the conflict.
So there is a chance you are buying a camera that came from a published author.
I have used the camera several times and it produced wonderful photographs, the quick loading mechanism is something Leica M cameras desperately lack and the viewfinder is miles ahead of everything except the MP and M7 with upgraded VFs. There is no haze on the lens or the viewfinder, the photos where it looks hazy are showing the reflections of the outer lens element coating.

The photo seems like the lens is hazy - but its not - the coating of the lens give of a warm yellow/brownish tint due to the materials used in coating.
