Agree. 35RC is a very good camera - much lighter than my Ql17GIII etc. I got it for $28 shipped. Although it probably cannot beat my $33 nearly mint Rollei 35S :p

got it. shutter works! light meter does work. lens elements have some fungus but I guess still worth $23 just for fun, and for comparison with my Rollei 35.
Anybody know if it needs light seal foam?...

just a reminder: you may want to test shoot every one before you give them out - some Rollei 35s suffer misfocusing because laymen have adjusted focusing improperly.

I have two MiG 35, one MiS 35 and three MiG 35S. The biggest difference is the viewfinder. The viewfinder on the MiG 35 is bigger, much brighter - once you see it you would't want to go back.
