Default Free vintage viewfinder extensions

I asked an admin if it would be alright to post this and was told to go ahead as long as it was clear that I am not offering anything for sale.

With the disclaimer out of the way here is the deal. I am doing a deep clean around the house and ran across a bunch of old camera accessories. I have sold most everything on an auction site but these did not generate any interest.

They appear to be as new, never used. If I had to guess these have been around the house since at least the early 70's and probably longer as my father gave me all of the Pentax gear around that time so would have had no reason to buy them after that time.

If there is anyone here that is into vintage gear that might want these (or if you know anyone) let me know and they are yours.

Steve

P.S. I can see that my product photography needs some work

Hi Steve, I've just bought two Pentax Spotmatics - do you know if these would fit them or are they for the ME etc ?

Thanks
Kevin

Anything I would tell you is just a guess but the camera Dad gave me was a Spotmatic so I would say they do fit that model.

My Dad was USAF during the Korean War and was attached to a photo recon squadron. As a technician he pretty much grabbed everything camera related that was offered for sale by the Air Force so they may be from that time frame. I have no idea.

I can tell you they will not fit a Sony A550 because I checked.

Maybe someone can chime in and tell us what models might be supported.

Steve

They are soon to be off to a new home.

Can you tell me anything about them? When they were made, specific intended purpose?

Steve
