    Hi. Found this camera in an old house in Texas. The inscriptions say "Okinawa 1948-49" on the back cover and "[staff sergeant] James H Kays" on the top. I know nothing about cameras but I can tell this has some value. can anyone help me out here?

    ARGUS C3. Made in the USA from the late 1930's to the 1960's--VERY popular. I own a couple. That one is very much user-grade. WHAT MIGHT, and I emphasize might make it have more than normal value is the military angle on the case...but of ocurse, that would be only to a particular type of collector...it's been personalized with the Staff Sgt.'s name and duty station...otherwise the case is in average, worn condition. Let's put it this way, last year at Goodwill I bought a like-new C3 in case, a 1958 model, for $25, for the cleanest, most minty case and camera I've seen in my lifetime. The first one I bought was in 1975, for $10. I would try and sell this via e-Bay for the widest possible audience, and emphasize the "US military in occupied area" angle....otherwise...$25-$40. Do NOT try and clean up the case in any way.

    A complete history of the Canon Rangefinder cameras is written by Peter Dechert. Easy to find in Google Books. McKeown is good but Dechert's book is best.

    the infamous "black brick", after the war, Kodac sold cameras made in Germany, with much higher shutter speeds and the brick was dead. vin

    Production of the C3 didn't end until 1966. It's cost was much lower than the German cameras and Argus sold literally millions of them.
