Very rare find in NZ. Overseas sale range usually US$150-480.

Ilford Advocate Series 2.
F:35mm with Dallmeyer Anastigmat lens f/3.5.

One of ~5000 made in Ilford, UK in c.1953.
Body serial number is 1919-7007 (the series 2 range was around 5000-10000 of the Advocate range).

Average-good condition. A few areas where the enamel is lifted but has not chipped off. No signs of fungus on lens. Some staining on back ?from leather case. Comes with original leather case which is fairly worn, has original owner’s name written in pen.

Unsure if this one works. The shutter is functioning albeit a touch sticky. Both dials and lens appear to function.

The Advocate is a landmark in British camera construction.
