Serial # 28850 Asahiflex IA sold on eBay on 10/06/2012 for $431.75. Came with case, but it was separated. Seller stated it appeared to work, but not sure.Says it was stored in a humidity controlled room because because previous owner was a collector. The name "Asahi Opt Co" engraved on the back door leather.

Nevermind, found it. Though the price seems to be $186.27, not $431.75?
