History: A masterpiece of german lens making from the late 1880ies. The Voigtländer Extra Rapid Euryscop offers the best of the 2 worlds, its well corrected (way more then the petzval design), but also offers a quite high open aperture of F6 (way faster then the stadard aplanat). The series number is 41.594, which dates it back to the year 1892.
Condition: The condition of the lens is very good. The brass shows some character and was not polished, overall it shows a fine patina. The glass is in a fantastic condition, i cant even see any cleaning marks there. There is no haze, fungus or seperation there. The lens features a waterhouse slot (no stops included).
The lens comes with a fitting flange and a leather lenscap.
