Vintage KODAK BANTAM SPECIAL Camera W/ Leather Case Supermatic Ektar 45mm Lens. Serial number looks to be late 1930s. 1 second might be a bit slow, but all speeds currently work and seem about right.
The rangefinder isnt crystal clear, but is nice and gets the job done and accurately from my experience! Glass is in surprisingly decent shape.Finish has some wear but is still in good shape. Same with case and shutter face. I have the pressure plate taped to accommodate 35mm shooting (respooled), but can be used with 828 again by cleaning it off. That stuff is really hard to find and pricey, but youll have that option. Bellows are not perfect, but some care can help overcome pinhole leaks. Possibly pretty repairable, as well.
