Argus C
This is an original Argus C, a very early 35mm film range-finder camera. This unit is serial number 4722C, manufactured in 1938. It was obtained at an Estate Sale in Dallas, TX for $12. The camera was in bad condition, with lots of dirt. The shutter was not working. After a lot of cleaning and some repairs, I got everything (more or less) functioning and shot a roll of film. The camera still has significant focus errors but it will record images.
