Pentax K1000 SLR Body with Split Ring Screen! Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K1000 SLR Body with Split Ring Screen!

Asking Price
$50 USD Shipped USD

Item Location
Waldorf, MD (United States)

Item Description
I have up for sale a Pentax K1000 35mm SLR camera. This is a run-of-the-mill, completely standard K1000, with standard black leatherette.

However, somewhere along its journey, it was somehow gifted with a horizontal split-ring focusing screen as seen in the K1000 SE, ME Super or Super Program cameras.

How, why and when this K1000's split ring screen was installed, I have no idea. But have one, it does, and it's the only such example I've ever seen.

Other than the split ring, it's a moderately-used K1000 with a scuffed bottom plate, decently clean top plate, leather in good shape, bright finder and 100% working optics and mechanicals.

If you fancy a K1000 with a split-ring screen, but don't want to pony up for an SE or think that brown leatherette is so 1978, this is your chance!

Includes strap and body cap.

Due to the special nature of this camera, I'm asking $50 USD shipped in the USA.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?
