how much is my vintage foldex 30 camera worth.?

i have a vintage foldex 30 camera that my grandfather used in the war. i need some money but i can hardly fined any info on it. and i cant find any beingd sold. the foldex 20 is bieng sold anywhere from 50 to 300 bucks so i figure the foldex 30 is much more costly. i hope so. can anybody know anything about the value of my mint condition foldex 30.

It's worth about $25. I'm curious where you found Foldex 20's being sold for $50-$300. The ended auctions at eBay show them being worth $10-$20. True, some people on eBay are asking for $200 for one, but nobody's buying at those prices. As you say, the Foldex 30 is less common. Not that rare automatically translates to valuable, but still. Here's what I found: "A Foldex 30 is basically a Foldex 20 with a Vario shutter and a (focusable) Cassar" ( .php/t-59801.html ). These features are clearly improvements, but it remains a basic camera. The Rolls Royce camera in this segment (1950s 6x9 folders) is the Zeiss Super Ikonta C. When fully restored and in good cosmetic condition, that camera is worth roughly $600. It has a superb construction quality with an amazingly sharp Tessar lens, a coupled rangefinder, a full range of shutter speeds and aperture stops... It has everything going for it. What you have is a Volkswagen that needs to be serviced. Servicing because after sitting in a drawer for decades you probably have light leaks in the bellows, a sticky shutter, possibly the lens needs realigning, etc. I'm sorry to dash your hopes, but it is not a collector's item. P.S. The value of a camera does not go up if it was used in a war. If your grandfather was a big time celebrity, maybe.
