I think I'd have a better chance of getting $200 for my grandma's underwear.

Ugh! That's an ugly mess! I wouldn't try it... It'd be more work than it's worth.

You never know, there might be a market for it in Japan.

Maybe stripped for some inner parts but that's it really. Won't waste my time even if it's free.

You know, in the days before eBay -- if anyone can remember that far back -- people actually used to THROW OUT some stuff.

Looks like someone has converted it to some strange mount by glueing a new mount over the K-mount. And he had a lot of that glue
