Sometimes a camera is just a camera, and sometimes it is more of an artifact. This sweet little Agfa Shur Shot Special, from the 1930s, has seen some hard times, but is only the more worldly and mysterious for it's adventures. This camera has more features than the Shur Shot, including a flip up close up lens and a yellow filter. The best part, however, is the attractive Art Deco face, which does show lots of wear to it's metallic finish, but manages to look all the more attractive for it.

The faceplate, with it's Art Deco design of U shaped bands, shows oxidation and discoloration. The leatherette on the body is damaged in places, with some small spots around the edges where the surface seems to have been rubbed off, and is very dusty and soiled on top. Hand strap is shredded. The back cover is missing a rivet and tends to hang by it's last rivet when opened or with a lot of handling.

Shutter works, however the diaphragm selection lever does not appear to be. Because of this, the camera is sold as is, for collection and decor. There is something very beautiful about this well aged camera. It appears as lovely and strange as a family heirloom.
