Item Description
This is an absolutely gorgeous 1960's vintage Asahi Pentax S1a.

The body is in near mint condition, with only some tiny scuffs on the base and shutter release button and some small bits of (factory) glue protruding from some of the seams. It honestly looks like the camera could have been purchased yesterday. All camera functions have been tested and are working smoothly, and the viewfinder, mirror, and focus screen are all in clean, pristine condition. The camera's interior is also beautifully clean, and all foam rubber seals appear to be intact.

The camera comes with its original Pentax-brand leather case, which is in excellent condition. The leather itself is still soft and supple, and aside from minor scuffing and wear on the rivet paint, appears new. The velvet interior of the case shows minor wear to be expected from holding the camera for over 40 years, but is otherwise undamaged.

The camera also comes with an Asahi Optic Co. m42 Super-Takumar f2.0, 55m lens. The lens is also in excellent condition, with only minimal rubbing on the control surfaces. The glass elements are clean and free of scratches, fungus, and haze.

Ha!

Yeah, she really wanted to be in the shot. Apparently she's a Pentax fan.
