Rollei-Mutar Set, Complete original 0.7x and 1.5x set for bay III with hoods and cases

The mutars attach to the front of some of the Rolleiflex TLR's with bay III filter mount and allow either a longer focal or shorter by .7x or 1.5x.   

There were not a lot of these made, and mostly you'll find them now without the case or sometimes even without the important folding light shade.  Since they hang from the face of the TLR, they have a little deployable kick stand which allows the camera to be placed down without falling over.   Most of the Mutar's you'll see these days have a little dent on the bottom front from people forgetting about the kick stand.  When that happens you can't fit a filter on the taking lens which is a shame. 

The leather cases attach together with two removable pins so if you want to just take one size along, it's easy to do. Also the leather neck strap can be taken off and put onto just one or neither if you don't want it.  It's a really neat system!

These are really about as perfect a set as I've seen.  For the shooter or the collector. I've had them in my personal collection for 3 years, but never actually use them so I figured it was time to let them go.  I hope I don't regret it!

Also please do not waste your and my time by asking me to separate this set, or do something silly like sell you just one of the shades.
