I film tested the camera on 1/24/2020, one of the photos I took can be seen in image #12. I noticed that that film advance lever is a little stiff but the light meter is working, contrary to my earlier description.You could shoot with this camera today but you may want to have a CLA done as I suspect it's never had one. Listed here is a 1956 Rolleiflex 2.8E 6x6 TLR Camera With Xenotar 80mm F2.8 Lens. This camera is nearly flawless inside and out. No dings, no scratches, no damage anywhere to the body. Both lenses are free of mold, haze or separation, only a tiny bit of micro dust as expected.
The taking lens does have a tiny 1mm scratch as shown but wont affect photo quality. Shutter fires close to factory at all speeds except the fastest one, which is off by approximately 1/100 of a sec. Aperture is working properly, no oil on the blades. This beauty was clearly loved and well taken care of. Also included is a nice camera strap that I forgot to photograph.
