Focusing screens - listing all my used screens

Over the years I've collected quite a number of focusing screens - mostly from different cameras that have come through my hands but I've also picked up a lot by rummaging around in the factory QC area while in Germany and bought ones on ebay going as far back as 2004 when I first my first Rolleiflex SLR camera - a 6008AF.    I've even had some made myself.    Since I stopped selling Maxwell screens (too much hassle, too expensive, virtually identical to the High D screens) a lot of people have asked about screens so I've started to go through my screen box and list them.    I've also gotten in from the factory some NOS High D first Generation screens for both the SLR and TLR screens. 

I've learned a few things about focusing screens over the years - focusing screens are personal choices, not one is always best.   Some people prefer one style or another or swap out screens for the project - macro, indoors, architecture/landscape, etc.  It's really cool how quickly and easily the screens can be swapped out in the Rolleiflex SLR cameras.

    Currently the only screens I have for the 2.8F TLR are the new old stock (NOS) screens made for the Platin edition. These screens are actually quite excellent. I replaced my own older Maxwell screen with one even so that says a lot. You’ll find these OEM screens on my shop. https://rolleiflex.us/products/oem-rolleiflex-focusing-screen-for-older-trl-with-removable-wlf-like-2-8f-3-5f
