No 2 Folding Cartridge Hawk-Eye camera finished in black. The camera is in good condition.
The camera came with its original sales carton (slip box), which has a blue Hawk-Eye label on one end face. The box is splitting at the corners but is otherwise intact. It is not uncommon for these boxes to survive with the camera.
The later Model C version of this camera was also made in colours (red, green, brown).
