The Ansco Dollar camera is a simple box camera that I picked up in Belfast, Maine. It takes 8 images on 127 film. They're cleaner images than I was expecting. Except for that thread in the corner. The camera was produced from 1910 to 1928 and is a small 4x3½x2½" box camera for 127 film. Available in black, burgundy or green. No strap. Some are identified "Ansco Dollar Camera" on the front. The same camera in red and with a strap was sold as the Kiddie Camera from 1926 to 1929. Boys Life magazine touted it as “The biggest dollars’ worth your money can buy” in 1924. In fine condition this camera is worth $20.00 to $30.00 in 2016.
