$150 · Canon Canonet QL19 35mm Rangefinder Camera

Canon Canonet QL19 35mm Rangefinder camera including box and some packing and a leather case. When I received it the shutter and aperture blades were oily, preventing proper operation and there was fog in the viewfinder. I have stripped the camera down, cleaned the blades, cleaned the fog from the viewfinder, replaced the battery, and replaced the light seals. The viewfinder mirror has some etching on the outside edges of its silvering, the body shows light wear from its 50-60 years of use. I am unable to test shutter speeds. The batteries have changed chemistry technology and the now slightly higher voltage will throw off the auto-metering some. Work-arounds include shooting manual, figuring out the metering and compensating for it or, if you're real keen, ordering a fancy adapter that drops the voltage to what the camera is expecting.
