Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
That model of camera is an antique or classic that takes either
single 8 Univex economy film rolls, or
all standard double 8 rolls.
It is a Univex camera made by Universal Camera Corp, that went out of business in 1952.
It is powered by winding up a spring, which turns the workings and rolls inside the camera when film is being exposed.
Do you mean the value to put it up for sale?
That depends upon the condition. If the wound spring is 'overwound' and stuck and not working, for instance, that diminishes the value. Dings and scrapes and wear marks on the case, and most especially a broken lens or unusable lens (focusing stuck, or focus fixed but unusably close or over-far) would diminish the value, saleable value, etc.
So please describe the condition, and I will cast about and try to find a good estimation of value for you. Thanks.
Indeed it's in good condition for a camera that old that has seen use.
I'd estimate a good sales figure to try for would be:
- Fixed figure (where no bidding-up is done, i.e. not on eBay): $ 60
- Bid-up starting figure: $ 55
- eBay BuyItNow figure: $ 85
because the sales figures I can find for it all sold, but at lower prices like $29 or $14.
So this may not be very favorite or collectible, but some people may buy it, if it's in good condition and working, for about as much as I've stated. (If you find the posting attracting no interest at the above prices, just post $10 lower, wait again and see, etc.)
If this completes the case, please rate my Answer, so that this case may be closed. Thanks, ***** ***** luck.
