FOR SALE ☞ No. 1A Autographic Kodak Junior Model A Folding Bellows Camera and Case
DESCRIPTION ☞ Made by Eastman Kodak of Rochester NY. Last patent date of 1920 for the USA and 1915 for Canada. This particular type of camera was manufactured between 1914 and 1927 with several models in the series -- this one being the first. Serial number on this particular camera shows "732641" on the kick stand. Has a meniscus achromatic (or fixed focus) lens, and Kodak Ball Bearing Shutter with T, B, 1/25s, 1/50s and 1/100s settings. Autographic door opens and closes but is missing the stylus.
DIMENSIONS ☞ Camera measures approximately 7.5 inches tall (w/o handle) and 4 inches wide.
CONDITION ☞ Leather is worn due to age and use. Could use a gentle cleaning and oil. Camera is easy to open and collapse. Shutter seems to work well. Bellows are in fair condition. Red plastic window is broken but can easily be replaced. We cannot test the camera fully as 116 film is no longer made (although rumor has it one could convert their own film if one is apt to do so!) Missing autographic stylus.
Case latch works well. Strap leather has come apart from one end of the bag. Fabric lining has come away from the leather on the strap. This listing is sold as is. Please see photos and of course, more photos are available upon request. Color may differ slightly in real life from how it appears on your screen due to varying monitor settings.
