Shipping from Germany would probably make it fairly uneconomical
You could list it in the classifieds here and see if there is any interest.
And answer questions on what exactly it is (condition, function, ...)... that's already too much work for my lazy self.
I haven't even gotten around to listing all the non-crap gear that I've decided to sell...

The same.
I don't know if some other company would be cheaper (most only ship to the EU and it's neighbours) but trying to find out would interfere with the action-oriented expression of my lazyness and thereby undermine the introjective self-justification of my offer...*

I went to the Nantes swap/expo on Sunday and picked up a few goodies which I will share later.

Here's a few snaps and it was a "small" swap for a big city like Nantes. I was bit disappointed, but it was my first time to go there.

Another score from my trip to Nantes swap ... I talked the vendor down to 8€ because the aperture was stuck wide open. Not everyday one gets an ausJena for this price point!

Took me about 30 minutes, but I freed and fixed the aperture. Also temporarily made the lens full manual via the hollow Q-tip trick, because I lost the ball bearing for the Auto/man switch ...argh!

No biggie, I like it this way and maybe I will find the minuscule ball bearing later on my hardwood floor ... ha! (xpost)

That's making me want to fish my Praktica LLC out.

For some reason it came with a CZJ 50mm f2.8 rather than a Pentacon Electric, so I've no idea whether the open aperture metering works. I had to clean a mushroom farm out of the lens and the self timer doesn't work, but the test roll I put through it (mostly using Sunny 16) came back fine. Paid about the same for it as you did for yours!

I do not know if my meter works ... I popped a battery in but the contact is too corroded and I got "zero" reading ... Need to clean/repair this soon and find out. I was too excited and concentrated on the Jena 50 ... J

A weird Nantes swap "mis-match" out of an under-the-table junk bin ... a 10€ gamble.

Tried to talk the seller down, but no go ... 10€ is 10€. The body was in great shape and the Helios worked fine. No battery to test the meter so a "gamble" ...

Got home and plopped in a battery and the meter "works" (somewhat sluggishly) ... but I am a sucker for these Icarex bricks. Love that focus screen ... J

Mine had lost one of its battery contacts, strange as that was the only damage to the camera. I made a replacement from a spring and soldered it to the remains of the original, it's a little bit too long as the battery is hard to remove.

I was advised that a AA would be fine, and sure enough the meter reads correctly. However, it's such a fiddle to use stop-down metering on the LLC that I usually just guess the settings.
