Hi - I've been collecting cameras for 40+ years, but I never saw a live one of these until today. Bought it for $4.00 at a flea market in Urbana, Ohio. Seriel Number 1314. It's a little beat up and corroded, but the shitter and lens are still intact and the mechanism still works? The non-coupled RF is busted and a chunk is missing. I think the Bakelite case is stilll ight-tight. I've cleaned the goop off it and will give it a proud and unique place in my collection. In front of the Arguses. Funny old thing. I was really surprised when I got it home and started to clean it and discovered a cloth focal plane shutter and an interchangeable lens under all that dirt. The thing is 9 years older than me - and I'm OLD!

Was fun looking up details on the web. Was amazed to find this site!! I'll re-visit.
