Item Description
This item was given to me by a friend who received it from another friend who was getting out of photography. He did not want to put it on ebay in case his friend might check so knowing I am into photography he asked if I could find a home for this stuff. I am not into film enlarging so have no use for the equipment.

I also have no idea if the equipment works. I was told it does.

Here is a list of what is included.

1. Charles Beseler Co. Enlarger, Model 23C Ser II with power supply.
2. Retouching Colors by Retouch Methods (14 colors)
3. Kodak Retouching Colors Dry-Dye
4. Pfaff Watson 35mm Bulk Film Loader
5. Focal M500C-Zoom Flash
6. A milk crate full of manuals.
7. UV light
8. Vivitar remote flash mount.
9. Beseler Enlarger Lensboard No. 4520
10. Wiko ABV/Photo Lamp
11. Anscomatic II Projector

The unity is heavy and shipping would be at least $40.00 but I will need to check the total weight to be sure. All together it may be 50 to 75 lbs.

Make an offer if interested.

I assume that is the enlarger on the floor?

You might want to take a picture of the enlarger itself from the front and side. Also of interest to a potential buyer is whether lenses and negative carriers are included. It looks like it is equipped with the dichroic color head, so that would make it a diffusion enlarger. If the condenser light source is included, that would also affect value.

I am not interested myself (have a nice 6x7 enlarger), but there are a number of film photographers on this forum that might be. The 23C is a wonderful tool and should generate some interest.

Thank you for the suggestions. Your right, it would make sense to also include the main unit in a shot. I will do that shortly. Not sure about the other items. I have no clue about enlargers and the various parts. There is a plate with a lens in a box, I will also detail that.

Ah, this was my dream machine back in the '70's. Someone will be happy buying it.

So true...

I am curious about the two lenses that I see in the second picture...

There are 2 lenses. One on the unit is a Schneider-Kreuznach 1:5.6/80. The one in the box sitting on the unit is a 1:4/50. There is also a second set of lens caps next to the box.
