Description

A good example, though the leather is dry and splitting where there are joints in the underlying wood, so it is a little fragile. The case is even worse - almost a 'kit of parts'! Serial number suggests that this is an early model though (87x out of 23,000 made according to Coe [4]).

Notes

While this version is identified as a Model A, Coe does not identify any variations or changes in this camera, unlike the smaller No 2 Bulls-Eye Kodak and the larger No 4 Bulls-Eye Kodak.
