Name: No.1 Autographic Kodak Special Camera (Model B)

Category: camera

Size/weight: lightweight and compact

Rarity: Uncommon

Value: $79

Description (ca. 1921): This model was produced for only a few months. A thumb-turn gear served as a lens focus. This camera model series is called 'Autographic' because there was an autographic door on the back of the camera that could be used to jot down brief notes at the border of each exposed image. Since this feature was introduced only a year prior with the No. 1 Special, it was rather rare.
