Hi All -- well today I went out on my 'One Exercise Allowed' with a 1930's ZEISS IKON folder I was given some time ago -- I HAD tested it with B&W film but after a good clean up of the lens inside as it was 'Hazy' I tried it with Colour Film -- very Old Kodak Vericolor III nominally rated 160 ASA but I rated to at 50 ASA as it was old. I didn't get all 8 frames successful. One in the Garden had Lens Flare and some were out of focus especially some Spring Flowers in Brentwood High Street where I set 2 meters -- the focus point on the negative was much closer so I will have to take the lens apart again --- ANYWAY -- It kept my Mind Active and I'm grateful for all these 'Gift' Cameras and Film I get -- I USE them !

Last picture looks very sharp. What is the lens, an uncoated Tessar?
