No 2C Autographic Kodak Special with CRF, akin to the 1A Autographic Kodak Special and 3A Autographic Kodak Special (which was the first to have the CRF), but apparently not as common.

This example is in good order generally (displayable), but is suffering with the affect of corrosion of the screws beneath the leather, which has created large bumps beneath the surface.


The bumpy surface noted above is not uncommon on these cameras where a chemical reaction occurs between the assembly screws and the aluminium body leading to a build-up of green verdigris beneath the leather, which then swells into a dome.
