The camera doesn't seem to be working properly. The lens is a bit wobbly, the shutter works slightly, the film advance and return both works, the shutter button works, the viewfinder works, and the film door works.

Specs

The Mamiya 4B and the Rank Mamiya. The Sears Tower 10B label has had two different inscriptions over the years: initially "Tower 10B" and subsequently "Sears 10B." The Tower 10B is a rangefinder with a selenium light metre, giving it the benefit of battery-free operation like its brothers. The film's sensitivity can be changed from 10 to 400 ISO.
The fixed lens has a central shutter made by Seikosha. In addition to long exposure (B), the available shutter speeds are 1/4 to 1/250.

The same numbering pattern is used for these triplets' serial numbers. Small definitional changes have occurred over time, and these include: - the lens's dual "Mamiya-Kominar" and "Mamiya-Sekor" inscription.
- The rewinding film release button, which at first has a red line but later changes to a red dot.

The Rank Aldis and the Kobica 35 BC served as the inspiration for the design of cameras used in South Korea.

History of these Cameras

A Tower camera is a member of the family of Tower camera models created in the 1950s and 1960s for Sears, Roebuck, and Company. Under the Tower brand name, Sears offered a variety of models, many of which were made by well-known companies.

One of Mamiya's biggest distributors, Osawa, filed for the equivalent of bankruptcy in Japan in 1984. Soon after, Mamiya stopped manufacturing 135-film cameras in order to concentrate on the medium-format professional market.
