Vintage Argus C3 ‘Brick’ Film Camera includes the leather cover and features a coated Cintar lens, indicative of the post WWII era. This camera's serial number 497619 fits it firmly in the 1950-51 years of manufacture. The front of the lens is marked 'f3.5 - 50mm ARGUS COATED CINTAR' and 'MADE IN U.S.A.' These cameras were very popular with consumers who enjoyed the solid, scientific body and enjoyed a long history of happy photographers in the 35mm camera era.
The vintage camera's parts are in working order, though untested with film. The leather case is in fair condition with some stitching failure and the strap which has separated from the body on one side.
