*ITEM: ARGUS C3 1939 thru 1957 Vintage 35mm Camera "The Brick" Photography Photo


*MODEL: C3. This C3 does not have any serial numbers. All C3's after 1958 had serial numbers and manufacturing tags. This camera only has the patent numbers molded into the inside film compartment and no other markings or tags except on the lens itself.

*LENS: F/3.5 50mm

*YEAR: 1939 thru 1957

*CONDITION: The shutter was tested and appears to be working. The shutter button was pressed and shutter movement was seen in the lens.The film compartment looks alright as far as I can see. I do not know very much about these older cameras just what is seen. This camera is untested by me. The cats eyes in the lenses appear to be functioning. Setting the exposure and other knobs and functions I do not know anything about and did not mess with these.This camera and lenses have there dings, knicks, marks, scratches and wear on the bodies. There is some soil also.

* The camera case has a couple of bad places. The top rear center of the lid has some missing stitches and the center seam is loose held together with some staples. The bottom leather isn't stitched or attached to the bottom leather sides and only held in place with 3 snaps to the opening front and lid with the camera screw holding it to the camera.

*FEATURES: Rangefinder, lever/knob shutter mechanism ( the shutter is not engaged by the film winder, its engaged with its own lever/knob.). The black knob on the front of the camera in the picture sets the sutter button. Appears to be a fixed lens, 2 view ports (slightly cloudy), camera case has its issues with stitch separations and the leather carry handle is missing.
