The cameras in this trio are cute, chunky, and made completely of plastic. This last trait classifies them as toy cameras, which often produce much-desired vintage results.

This listing is for the set of three, one in mint green, one in red, and one in tan. They all show signs of use and wear. Please refer to the photos for the condition of the cameras. Because the photos do not show all of the flaws, I will try to be very specific. My descriptions make them sound much worse than they are, but I don't want to leave out any details.

While all of the faceplates have some minor scratches or wear, none have any major damage. These cameras are clean, all of the shutters fire, and each camera contains one metal spool. Overall, they display very nicely and would make a wonderful collection.

The Green camera has some discoloration to the surface and some scratching, especially around where the flash was attached. There is also a small spot on the lens. There is a cracked / damaged spot beside the viewfinder on the back. The strap is in very good condition.

The Red camera appears faded, has very minor oxidation to some of the metal parts, and has a hairline crack in the bottom. There is a tiny dent on the front beside the viewfinder. The lens is in very good condition. The strap has some marks on the top.

The Tan camera has some rubbing and discoloration and has very minor oxidation on some of the metal parts, but otherwise looks to be in good condition. The lens has a small scratch at the bottom but is otherwise fine. The strap is in very good condition.

I have not film tested these cameras, but I don't have any reason to believe that they would not work. Although Imperial cameras are usually plastic toy cameras, they often produce very good, reliable results with a vintage appearance. I have posted some photographs that I took with an Imperial 620 box camera on flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnandjohnnie/sets/72157627579653174/
