The camera has noticeable wear on it, scratches, and scuffs all around the body. The chrome has been stripped in some areas. However, this is all aesthetic as the camera works as it should.

As the best TLRs in the world, Rolleiflex is the most desired TLR model in nostalgic film photographers. 2.8F model is no doubt the diamond on the crown. I think the paramount of the Rollei brand is around the era that 2.8f was manufactured, until when the great founders and partners, Frank and Heideck's name were no longer engraved on its cameras. FX or GX is not comparable to 2.8F, mechanically as well as aesthetically. This copy is an excellent+ condition 2.8C, which you can refer to in the pics. This is the latest version and what makes it rare is that it has the 10 blades aperture which is perfect for bokeh and portrait shooting! Only very few of the Rollei 2.8 versions are made in 10 blades iris, most of them only have 5. For the optical and mechanical condition please refer to the detailed description. Generally speaking, it is in great condition. This copy has the original cap, genuine leather case (which is rare for the monk's head), and meter cover.
