It sure looks like it has potential.
What made you get it?

I buy and sell stuff
Ole, you're just the man to ask a quick question,

We're still shifting through my mother's stuff and came across some virgin official Colonial Williamsburg postcards. 24 so far. The 'rents went down there circa 1964. Also about 10 others of the replica ships that brought the first settlers and other colonial postcards.

Are there hoarders that would actually buy these for more than the cost and PITA to advert, sell, and ship ??

Thanks, I already did an ebay on them and was hoping you had some personal experience in your wanderings.

A buck-a-piece +/- doesn't make 'em worth the aggravation. Maybe I'll do a craig's list for $20 for all - THEY pick 'em up here.

Ole, There are like 7-8 incarnations of this lens. Not sure which one you have other than its an early one. The first generation has no real value. It was clunky and hard to focus. That is an incredibly fast lens for a focal length of 300mm (meaning it let's in a lot of light.. not related to auto focus). You would need a super fast and accurate auto focus at f2.8 which was the weak point of all but the latest versions.
