Kodak #3-A folding Brownie, model A, w. RED BELLOWS 1905-15

A most beautiful camera, this is Kodak #3-A folding Brownie, model A, with red bellows, in excellent condition, no pin holds, not dried out. Shutter is an F.P. K. Automatic Eastman Kodak, f4 to F128 diaphragm. Lens type is not marked but it's most likely a Rapid Rectilinear. Looks very clean. Shutter speeds are T, B, and I. Working excellent. Also has a bulb, air release on the side. Made from 1905 to 1915, used 130 film, which is no longer available. Covering is very good but has some tiny bits of white stuff on the top. May come off with paint thinner. I didn't try it. Rack and distance lock are excellent. Struts, revolving reflex finder, and closer are excellent. Inside is clean and has one film spool. Covering on the front door opener got scratched, but not too bad. The edges are a little worn. This is serial number 57131. The strap is missing but it's a push on strap holder so any Kodak strap of the same size will work. I don't have one. Side to side it's about 10 inches long. Overall condition is very good to excellent. Shipping is exact cost, but I always make a rough weight estimate in the description. It could be different at the post office. Don't forget there is a shipping box to deal with.No handling charges.Shipping weight with packaging is about 4 pounds.
