1932 Rolleiflex Original?
Any ideas what this might be worth? I've tried all sorts of websites but no dice. Help is appreciated.

If you want to find the value of your camera you should check with either camerawest.com or keh.com, as both companies regularly deal in vintage colllectible cameras. On the other hand if you live near a good professional camera shop take a visit there and look for a book called McKeown's Price guide to antique and classic cameras which has the value of your camera there. Here is another website you should check out as well http://www.camera-net.com/pg.htm Oh yeah and the camera is worth more than $5 granted it is not in horrible condition and you are not planning to sell it on ebay.

Readers Questions and Answers in Amateur Photographer, the leading UK photographic magazine will give an indication of the value of a vintage camera. Email them with a photograph and brief description of the camera.(website below). It sounds to be worth more than the $5 suggested in the first answer and I agree that it is not a good idea to place it on e-bay unless you have a good idea of the value.
I've also done a search for you and the other site seems a good starting point - it may help you actually indentify your camera by serial number.Source(s): www.amateurphotographer.com http://johnsrolleionlypage.homestead.com/Rolleifle...

Please don't sell it hurry-burry... Some people like old cameras and antiques and once you will find them and you can sell it more than $100. Because the film and film cameras will vanish within 10 years from the whole world.And it will be a worthful thing soon even to the Rolleiflex company.

Don't sell it on eBay... you won't get what it's worth, and you'll regret it later.
Instead, check with any of the photography magazines where they have advertisers and want-ads; you'll find that there are companies that buy old cameras and you might also find individual collectors, too.
Give it a try. Good luck, best wishes.

Honestlyly... you will not likemy answer nor believe it!
The only value is to a collector and they are hard to find. I sold a 20 piecece antique set of camera's on ebay for $5. each... I couldn't get anyone to bid on a higher $ amount.
