Agfa Ansco Shur Shot Special 1935 - 1941

This is the early version of the Shur Shot Special. It's really a handsome camera and it's in mint condition. I don't think it's had more than a couple of rolls run through it.

It's equipped with a close-up lens and makes 6x9 images on 120 film.

Before the world became standardized, cameras were quirky items. The shutter on the Special is an excellent example of this quirkiness. The shutter makes an exposure when you push it down or lift it up. It's counter-intuitive, but that's life when you muddle around with ancient cameras.

  As explained above, the shutter works both ways.
