Stella is marketed in 1953. This camera without rangefinder very simple and economical, is provided exclusively optics "Staeble Kata" 50 / 3.5.
Camera intended for amateurs, but it is definitely one of the "Gamma" the most rare

Hello Mauro,
Believe me or not, I bought this camera in a modest boot sale in the suburbs of Paris in September 2007.
I was happy to pay 10 (ten) euros for it after a short negociation.
The camera came to me with its leather case and a light cell
Obviously, the saler did not know anything about vintage cameras and it was my lucky day.
This is to say that there is a big difference between "street prices" and estimates made from guides (e.g. McKeown), auction reports or sales on eBay.
This is also why 90 % of my cameras are the results of hunting in flea markets and street sales
