1950s Kodak Retina 1B 35mm Camera Type 019 Model 2 With f2.8 50mm Xenar Folding lens

This is a lovely example of a 1950s Kodak Retina 1B 35mm Film Camera Type 019 Model 2 With f2.8 50mm Xenar Folding lens

The camera is in excellent condition with negligible surface scuffs and blemishes. We have not had a film through the camera for many years but all the elements on the camera appear to be working.  A nice photography related collectible!

The name, Retina 1b, is etched on the chrome top along with Made in Germany. The Kodak name and/or Retina is also embossed on the leather at the front and the rear of the camera.

It comes with a brown leather carry case, with a brown leather strap, and some accessories including a separate sports finder with its case,  and a yellow filter lens.
