I was the only bidder on this near mint IIa last week, it works as advertised. It came with a pile of accessories too. The story is the seller's dad was in the Army and was posted to West Germany. He purchased this camera and all the accessories in 1951. I would say that the kit was "slightly used."
Not shown is a group of Tiffen filters and a filter adapter.
