    I found one of the old cameras I have had loafin around the house today (sadly my other 35mm's are nowhere to be seen.) I have no ideas as to what it is, there are no identifying markings on it whatsoever, It used to be my dads but he passed a few years ago so asking him is out.

    I would like to take it out and use it but it needs a major cleaning, not to mention I don't know where I would get 110 processed, but I'll find a way.

    Tomorrow I am going to get a shot of the viewfinder, the ones on here are round and recessed with the rectangle opening as opposed to the flush mounted ones on the one in the ad. Given the subtle changes that occure to products from one year to the next, you could be right.

    Hey man, you know more about them than I do.

    If I had one, I'd just forget researching and go out there and experiment and see what works for you.

    Does it use 110 film? If so, you ought to know that there were two 110 sizes film, one older (which can't be found any longer) and the 110 cartridge for smaller cameras.

    I wouldn't be surprised though to find out that it uses 120 film. ;)

    My sister was the last one to use it, she stated it took 110. I assume the it would use the latter because it was within the last ten years or so.

    I could measure it to be sure though

    No, it can't be the latter for sure. Best bet would be to measure the width of the film. Sometimes, as you open it up, it'll say on the inside what size film it uses. Could you take a pic of the open camera?

    I found the manufacturer markings but they are worn away fairly far, I would do a rub but it appears some one alredy did if not put the graphite on to the marking itself. All I can make out is "ansco"

    Ansco made box cameras alright and yours seems to be taking 120 size film, readily available. Yours looks like a 6x9 format.
