This is a fine example of the Agfa Ansco Admiral camera from the 1940's and was considered a pocket camera at that time because of its size 6" by 3.25" by 1 1/8" thick. It is a beautiful camera with folding bellows and shiny chrome accents, including around the lens. I found this camera on one of our recent "picks" at a North Central Texas estate sale.
It is in good vintage condition with a clean inside and outside. The shutter works and it used PB20 (620) film and could still be used with 120 film with adaptation. As with most vintage cameras there is some wear so please look at the pictures for a better idea of the condition.
I have not tried to take pictures with it so I do not know if it is still usable. It will make a great display piece for those fans of the 40's. The chrome ring around the lens reads Agfa Ansco and Binghamton N.Y. and Made in the USA. The black inner ring reads Admiral f6.3 Anastigmat.
It offers shutter speeds of: T, B, 100, 50, 25 and aperture settings of f/6.3, 8, 11, 16, 22, and 32. It has a name inside, written in what appears to be pencil, which is cool. It belonged to a Master Sergeant Roy H. Burbank from Sidney Beach.
