Black finish box camera with ENSIGN CADET in red on black metal badge above lens and wire frame finder.
This particular example appears to be in unused condition, coming as it does with the original orange packing box. However the packaging does not appear to have been a postal item.
There is also a version of this camera that is finished in brown leatherette. Early models have a wire handle.
