Vintage Kokak BROWNIE REFLEX SYNCHRO MODEL Box Camera! - eBay (item 310012468737 end time Jan-10-08 17:53:51 PST)

Do you like old box cameras?

This vintage box camera is marked, "Brownie Reflex Synchro Model, Made in U.S.A. by Eastman Kodak Co., Rochester, N.Y." The film cartridge says, "Use Kodak Film No. 127. Pats. U.S.A. Des. 119931, 2,206,211, 2,245,257, 2,252,688, 2,292,217, 2,292,218, T.M. Reg. U.S. Pat. Off."

The top opens to reveal a large view finder. To load the camera with film, turn the lever on the back from Lock to Open and pull off the camera bottom. The shutter button is the gray one at the bottom front, to the right of the flash connection. There's a tripod mount on the bottom.

The shutter works. The viewfinder and view lens have dirt and dust inside. The camera can use a good detail cleaning on the outside as well. The black braided neck cord is still strong and shows wear.
