This camera was so dirty and dull when I discovered it in a yard sale that I could buy it for a laughable price.
After some time spent cleaning and repairing it, here it is.

according to my investigations I may think it is a Model A from Century Camera Co dated 1901

What a beautiful camera. Nice restoration.
 
Wow, a hundred and twenty years old!

I agree, you did an excellent job of cleaning and repair.

Would love to see a "before pic".
 
Very nice, I'd agree a Model A. I have a No 46 and these cameras are beautifully made and also useable, they will accept modern DDS film holders, although in my case they don't fit the case but Graflex plate holders do (just) and I have plenty of film inserts.
