Vintage Polaroid Land Camera, model 95, with a brown leather case with chrome metal fittings, condition is excellent, see photos for details. Based on the condition of this camera I would say it should be fully working though I have not tested. The camera was purchased from a very exclusive local estate, where the son of the family had served in the SC House of Representatives. This is a wonderful vintage camera, and would be a great addition to a collection.

Land Cameras are instant cameras with self developing film named after their inventor, Edwin Land, a researcher in Boston, Massachusetts. The Polaroid camera was manufactured between the years of 1948 to 1983. The first commercially available model was the Polaroid Land Camera Model 95, which produced prints in about 1 minute, and was first sold to the public in November, 1948. The camera was named Polaroid Land Camera Model 95 due to its $95 suggested price ($922 in today's money), and it was the first of Edwin Land's instant picture cameras. Polaroid originally manufactured sixty units of this first camera. Fifty-seven were put up for sale at Boston's Jordan Marsh department store before the 1948 Christmas holiday. Polaroid marketers incorrectly guessed that the camera and film would remain in stock long enough to manufacture a second run based on customer demand. All fifty-seven cameras and all of the film were sold on the first day of demonstrations.
