A 17671 (DOOBC) was a bayonet adapter that permitted use of a Elmar 50mm on a
Voloy enlarger (also on some Focomats).  There also was a 17672 (DMUOO) that
adapted the lens unit of the Dual Range 50mm Summicron or a 50mm Summicron with a
removable head to the Valoy enlarger.  The prices for these items was $3.60 and
$3.30 respectively in the 1961 E.Leitz Catalogue #36  In the same catalogue SM to
BM adapters were $8.40 but those are now around $50 used.  Hope this helps.  Ed
