Well... 10 of you are bidding on it!!

Over $150 dollars so far... Which is considerably more than an in 'good-nick' ME goes for here in the UK...

Goes to show... One born every minute.

It amazes me how some people can dream these things up. In case anyone feels bad about not seeing a real rarity after looking at this thread, here is a camera from my collection: note the spelling of the name on the front prisim housing!





...and it great shape too!

Could it be that the camera you're discussing is something like this?

The 'ME Sport' prototype... the 'film type' indicator on the back door is from a Kodak Retinette.... Can't seem to find the rewind crank anywhere though. Anyone recognise any other 'parts bin' bits he's used?

The rewind crank looks familiar, but I have not been able to place it. It is similar to the one on my Yashica Lynx 1000, but not identical.

The shutter release looks like it might be FSU.
