M2 AND M3, with marvelous lenses.  CHead had promised me the Summicrons, 
which I have always dreamed of having.
I found 2 cases that the dumpsterers missed, containing a mint 2-1/4x3-1/4 
Graflex and lenses, and a Visoflex Tele-Elmarit with serious cosmetic 
damage due to the foam deteriorating.  When it became clear that the rest 
were gone, I did a quick sale of the Tele-Elmarit for $1000, kept a 47mm 
Super-Angulon (almost fills 4x5!), and gave the Graflex with the rest of 
its lenses to another of CHead's friends who wanted to learn what HE 
considered "large format".  I'm currently playing with swings and tilts 
with the Super Angulon on a Hama/Kenlock/Spiratone bellows as a miniature 
technical camera.
