Some while ago , I won a 1955 Kiev II a on e-bay - posted as a Kiev 4 .
It was in Spain , so I took a chance and bought it .
Three months later and several excuses it has arrived with my daughter .

It is almost pristine with a lovely honey colour square case which is perfectly clean inside and out . None of my early Kiev cameras , fine as they are , match this one for condition .

Winding initially was so stiff , even unscrewing the case difficult , that I suspect that it has never been out of the case for decades .

The best 50 I have spent on Kiev cameras - CLA essential !
