Ha ha, the real funny part... while I'm chatting to the guy he mentions that because he's in Quebec, lot's of his vintage items get bought up by movie directors who "chop stuff up for props". I decided NOT to tell him that I was both a movie director and that there was a good chance this would get chopped up and turned into a prop!Congratulations! Finding a seller who doesn't know what they have is pretty much the grail.
Ah yes, what to do, what to do...These graflex handles are a real treasure find... so its awesome you scored one.
So will you display as is in a case with a lightsabre or make a hilt?
Again, congrats to you sir, giggle all you want, such a great find and great story finding it.
Good spotting! I never saw that. I'm always too caught up in the moment of Hitler signing the grail diary. Lol.Nice score man!
Also funny little thing I noticed is that in the Hitler scene from Last Crusade you can see a graflex camera and flash in the group of photographers.
Agreed!Absolutely beautiful find! I would love a complete camera & flash just for display. I think it's a work of art as is!
Thank you kind sir.Gorgeous score mate. Congratulations!
Ha ha I know right! While my search for a Graflex over the years has been far from extensive, I certainly appreciate the significance of this find. Ha ha I feel like Indy! "That belongs in a museum!"Dreams: they can come true.
So cool, man.
Yeah I think it will clean up really well. I'll post pics after spending some time on it.Wow, that's in beautiful condition!
