Hello Pentax Friends,
I bought my grandson a K1000 SE for his high school photo class. It was $47 on ebay without lens. It's in nice shape and everything seems to work even the light meter. I would like to get more information on the camera. Serial number on bottom plate 7046860. It's all metal and as far as I can see no country is listed anywhere.
I have an Pentax 35mm-70mm lens, 1:2.8-1:3.5 that I found at a flea market for $20 in pretty decent shape that I added to the camera. If anyone can help with the year and country thank you and what was the original lens that came with this camera and what should one pay on ebay?

Here's more info on the camera:

Pentax K1000 - Pentax Manual Focus Film SLRs - Pentax Camera Reviews and Specifications

And here are the lenses it came with:

SMC Pentax-M 50mm F1.7 Reviews - M Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
SMC Pentax-M 50mm F1.4 Reviews - M Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

It will work with most Pentax lenses that are out there, as per this compatibility chart:
