LX Gold

My mother won a Pentax LX gold from a local camera shop in the early eighties. It has been in a safe deposit box for 20+ years, never been used and is in better than mint condition. We would be interested in any information anyone might be able to provide regarding its value.

The camera originally sold for 850,000 yen in 1981, which is about $13,000 today. I've seen it go for around $5000 or so on ebay, however.

I wonder what price B&H would quote for this in the used department, if any.

I cannot quote a price publicly, but if you contact our Used Dept directly, they will be more than happy to work out an offer for you.
