This is a neat little 35mm camera - Bolsey Model B - made in the late 1940s. It has an awesome look to it and is a really solid little camera. She does have a bit of dust and grim, so if you want to try to shoot with it, it'll need to be cleaned a bit. The focus knob moves smoothly. And the shutter cocks and fires and seems accurate.

This camera takes 35mm film.

It has a Wollensak 44mm f 3.2 lens. Made in Rochester, NY USA. Take her for a spin!

Cosmetics - Very good. Needs a Cleaning, no dents, very little wear. A few age spots.
Lens - Looks okay clean, scratch free.
Shutter - cocks and fires.

Shutter speeds from from 1/10 sec. to 1/200 sec. plus B and T.
Lens 44mm f3.2 Wallensak Anastigmat

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.
