WWII Era Vtg GRAFLEX 4X5 Camera, Ground, Type C-3 Property Air Force U. S. Army
Vintage FOLMER GRAFLEX CORP. The data plate says PROPERTY AIR FORCE U. ARMY – CAMERA, GROUND – TYPE C-3. From doing a bit of research it appears it is WWII era, but I’m not certain so please use your own expert judgment. The case has quite a bit of scuffs, paint loss and wear. There is wear inside, too. The bellows look pretty good, surprisingly good, actually. But they’re old and a bit stiff and I would consider them fragile. Okay to gently open and display, but if you wanted to use this camera you’d probably want to replace them. The lens reads “GRAFLEX OPTAR f 4.5″ and “6 3/8 ” FOCUS. The front lens has a little dirt/wear but looks pretty good. When I took the lens out, I can see brown spots on the back glass – mold? I see two holes at the lower left of the lens frame – I think a remote button piece goes there. Much like the other Graflex I have listed, I can’t figure out how to trip the shutter. Maybe they don’t work, or are missing something? I went on-line and looked at a manual, but I’m still not getting it. Please ask questions, and I will do my best to answer.
