Contax Zeiss Ikon X 789

Postby poppicat » Sun Nov 04, 2018 3:40 pm

Hi, as I don't have a photo on hand I don't actually want an appraisal of this camera but just want to know why I can't find the X789 model under the Contax models listed ( maybe I missed it) & an aprox idea of price if possible. It looks the same as some of the Contax11 cameras listed. My mother has the camera which is why I don't have a photo. It is apparently in very good condition. It has a Jena 1.15 Sonar lens.
Looking forward to your replies,

If the X789 is the serial number placed on its hotshoe, it could be a 1952 Contax IIa. It’s price depending on lots of things, if the shutter works, the rangefinder is ok, if it is cosmetically on good conditions, if the lens has no fungus and scratches and depending on which accesorios do you have with de camera, leather case, box, manuals....
This is my inventory, more yet to come: ... p?uid=4982
