Crystar 25/Crystar 25 AII
These were two variants of Crystar's geared-lens TLR from circa 1954. The basic model 25 had a Crystar B shutter with speeds 1/25-1/100 sec, and an ASA-style flash sync connector. The model IIA had a full range of shutter speeds from 1 to 1/200 sec, as well as offering a PC sync socket on its front panel. The elegant script nameplate appeared on both.
