    These things were in my garage when I bought my house.. Anyone know the approximate vintage? The bellows seems to be in perfect shape.

    My closest guess would be late 1950's to early 1960's, but I remember a #261 flash that came with it.

    Your #268 flash might be slightly later vintage than is the camera.

    On your last shot, does the 5/70 indicate May of 1970?

    Sounds reasonable, but I would have no idea.. Is that the actual film? There are three of those.

    I doubt that it is the actual film, unless it comes in some kind of foil wrapping.

    Almost looks like some kind of a sleeve or evnelope that you can use to mail in and order reprints. Hard for me to tell what you have when you can get a much better look at it than I can.

    Polaroid 80 was made in 1954. Some people convert them to take 120 film.
