Overpriced 6x7

In a pawn shop window I saw a dusty 6x7 in the corner with other old cameras.
I asked about it and he wanted 2500 for it with a 35 mm fisheye that he said was worth almost that.
I'm thinking it's a little high. (or he was)

That's horribly overpriced! I'd say that even for 67ii in pristine condition. The guy is off by at least a grand!

The Church/Queen pawn shops are notorious for pricing high, no product knowledge and no worthy warranty. Offer him $250.

Thanks DW, that's exactly where it was, the one right on queen opposite Henry's.
The guy is a prick though and I got the feeling he'd rather treat you like crap then sell you anything. The funny thing is it's been there a long time.

Most of these smaller shops are difficult to deal with. Nothing has change over the last 40 years.

...never buy camera equipment from a pawn shop. EVER. They know little to nothing about film cameras and offer no warranty or refund. Don't even bother unless you find some really naive one, but that rarely happens.
