Minister 700 f1.7 (1964)

Elusive rangefinder with 45mm f1.7 Lens

The shutter was not working on this one and as you can see from the covering damage someone had tried open lens surgery. This was easily repaired and is now fully working.

Most of the Yashica early rangefinders are easy to dismantle and repair after a little practice.
