Shipping can be arranged by negotiation but it would probably be cheaper to travel here and
pick it up. I think it could fit into a large SUV.
The sale includes about 40 different Polaroids which are not on display and many camera cases
(as in eveready leather) which are also not displayed or photographed.
The collection is located in Manitowoc Wisconsin and can be viewed during business hours or
by appointment. Call me at [removed] Todd”.
If you’re serious enough to follow the link to the original listing on eBay you will be able to see the seller’s phone number.
Getting this purchase approved by your significant other shouldn’t be a problem once you explain that getting these 600 cameras will be cheaper than buying one new medium format camera.
Plus, if you happen to be in the Manitowoc Wisconsin area and own a large SUV you can save serious bucks on shipping!
