Cleaning the basement, came across the Afga "Billy Record" camera my step-father picked up in Germany during WWII. It's still in very good condition and I'm curious just what model it is and would love any other info I can get. Has a nice leather case with his name/# "etched" in to it.
Thanks in advance for any help and assistance from the forum!

Thanks for the welcome and the links.
I checked them out but I'm still not sure what model I have.
My camera does not have the geometric "Art Deco" designs on the end.
It looks really similar but I'm a novice at this and still can't tell if it's a 4.5 or ?
Thanks again for the suggestions.
Any other suggestions on how to find the model and year?
I remember it still worked in the early nineties but I didn't have a meter so I guessed at the lighting and shutter speed without much luck at snapping any decent phots!

I see what you mean.
I can't remember it ever having one.
I always used the little side viewer that rotates out.
