The 6x9 Ensign Roll Film Reflex

The camera was sold described as "In good to used condition, Ensign Focal Plane Roll Film Reflex camera, Aldis Butcher 4" f3.4 lens, has haze and dust inside. Sold as spares / repair NO RETURN as the shutter blinds are not fully opening / closing hood is worn and the apeture is is too stiff to turn."

The shutter is functional but the second curtain is dragging, the mirror needs replacing and the focus screen is dim and dirty. The focus hood is creased an needs restoraton or replacement.
