Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
I really don't know much about this camera, despite all my research. I estimate it to be from the 1930's or so. Its pretty neat looking, but it can't be used as is. It is missing the film advance knob and I assume the red cover for the film display hole on the back. There is a bit of old tape on the back as well, but it could be scrubbed off.
It seems to be a very rare item - great for a collector! A perfect item to add to a display cabinet or camera collection.
Where did this camera come from? I purchased this one and many others at auction from a collection from a photography store. They seemed to have been cleaned professionally at one point, but they have been sitting around for some time. I only clean the outside, leatherette and big grungy bits very gently. I do not wipe lenses, I simply dust them a bit with a soft brush. I never use compressed air to clean my cameras as that may damage them and just blows the dust around. I do not test any camera with film, but I do test their mechanics. Any small or significant issues are always disclosed.
