I finally found the camera that completed my collection! It's the curved nameplate Mamiya Prismat. The one I found has a lot of issues. I've fixed the bent lens ring, but the mount is still jammed. The film advance lever doesn't work and the shutter release doesn't fire. As I said, there's still a lot of work to do to make this a functional camera again ... but at least my collection is finally complete.
