Unfortunately, it takes only type 88 film which is no longer manufactured and is unable to be found anywhere. Even ebay is scarce, and the film would be several years old. That said, this camera should either be only for display purposes or for the adventurous who wish to convert it into a pinhole camera or some other mysterious camera project.
This model has 'spreaders' instead of rollers, and is in great condition. I cleaned the battery contacts which were a little scummy. There is a random number 6 scrawled on the side by the flash cube insert with what appears to be a sharpie. I did not try to remove it but I'm guessing it wouldn't be too difficult.
The case has faux wood sides and reinforced plastic for durability. It is faux leather and suede, with a foam insert for cushioning the camera and little brass feet. Only light wear on the flap and some very minor scuffs. The bottom reads:
"Patented No. 3473590, Made in U.S.A."
The case is 8" tall, 5 1/2" wide and 8 1/2" long.
All in all, this is a beautiful and historic thing. It needs a loving home.
