I have a camera that my Father bought this from a sailor when he was in the service in 1940-45? It is almost identical to this one with a few exceptions.
The markings say Pini-Sport on the top and F. Decket- Munchen on the top part of the lens and COMPUR on the bottom. The inner ring on the lens says Steinbell Munchen Gassar.
Does any one know of this type or model ?

Manny,
It was manufactured by "Balda, Germany", close to 1938. 120 film, 4.5x6 exposures. Also, the same camera was manufactured by "Photo-Pini, Germany", and had a name of "Baldax 0" according to McKeown's.
You can find price for this camera over here - http://collectiblend.com/Cameras/Balda/Pini-Sport.html

Nope. This forum is mostly for questions/answers about camera prices.
