    How about a $98.00 Hawkeye Flash from Hollywood Camera. Ebay Item 290334509108. "Beautiful 30s Bakelite Camera". Actually, that one was manufactured in '53, and it's still only worth 3 bucks.

    Just for sh!ts and grins I sent the seller the following info:

    "As a collector, the Silly Record can fetch over $500 a piece, especially since it's made from a special alloy. Only a few cameras were made from this alloy by AGFA. I would also require heavy insurance for this rare camera. It's unusual to be found with German words on it. I have one in good shape and another one with Japanese words on it but in bad shape. Good luck."


    Let's watch...:lol:
