Zeiss Super Ikonta C 530/2 With Carl Zeiss Tessar 105mm F3.5 Lens,Compur Rapid

This auction is for a vintage Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta model C 530/2 with Carl Zeiss Tessar 105mm F3.5 Lens and a Compur Rapid shutter, it takes 120 roll film and produces negatives measuring 6x9 cm,
shutter is Compur-Rapid with speeds from 1 sec -1/400 sec, plus B & delayed action,
cosmetic condition is as can be seen in the photos, range finder is bright and working correctly, focusing wheel turns very smoothly, aperture blades are free from oil, aperture blades open and shut as it should, optics are free from fungus and scratch marks, however, there are some surface cleaning marks as well as some dust specks inside, shutter fires at all speeds including the slow speeds & delayed action working as it should, but there is a problem with the shutter release lever as i will explain below,
The problem is that the shutter release lever is stuck in released position as shown in the last photo, this means that when the shutter is cocked, the cocking lever would not lock into position and hence the shutter will fire without needing to touch the release lever & the same also applies when using the self-timer mechanism. The shutter release lever needs to be re-adjusted back into it's right position.
I am therefore offering this item as purely for spares/repairs, please have a good look at the photos and anything
