Anniversary Kodak Camera

Manufactured for a giveaway in 1930 by Eastman Kodak Co. This camera was a special edition of the No. 2 Hawk-Eye camera Model C, issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Eastman Kodak Co. Approximately 550,000 were given away to children 12 years old in 1930. It is covered with a tan-colored reptile-grained paper covering with a gold-colored foil seal on the upper rear corner of the right side.

    Simple to open, really. Slide the two latches over and off their pins (see the notes I added above). Then pull the winding 'key' (I guess I can't really call it a knob with THAT shape!) out about 3/8 of an inch or so--it will stop, don't force it out any further. Then the back will slide off the front.
