Carl Zeiss Jena Nr2695xxx Tessar 1:4,5 F=21cm. This is a very early good old Tessar, made circa 1940 according serial number, in well preserved condition, mounted on early version of Compound air shutter. Glasses are ok, with few dust and slight cleaning marks. Compound shutter works as it should at each speed (not tested for accuracy, but slow speeds are a bit too slow) from 1 second to 1/100e + B and T settings. Of course the body has some black paint loss and signs of years.
Don't forget this lens is 80 years old. A classic Carl Zeiss Tessar 4.5/210mm, with coated front glass and fast enough for wet plate photographers. In working order, and a CLA'd could be a good option. With a very nice rendering wide open for portrait in large format photography.
