Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Poland. One of the rarest subminiature japanese cameras made by Taiyodo in the late 40s and early 50s. Made for export only in very limited quantities. A great piece for subminiature collectors.
Made in Occupied Japan in the leather case. See the photos to evaluate the general condition. The advance film botton is working... And the counter moves one position.
On top there is a little botton. Needs an extra force to press.After pressing that botton it permits to repeat what I described until now. The aperture and speed system bottoms are moving normally.
The shutter system is working most of the time I'd say 70% of the time(It loads and return to its place, sometimes it stops in the middle after pressing the shutter in the left) but the main problem is... The diaphragm is not moving at all. So if the diaphragm is not moving I can not describe about the speeds and aperture.
The leather case is broken, see photo number 9. The take up spool is missing. It is in good condition, it is working but I do not know if it is accurate. In the back of the camera and in the leather case that is broken too, have the phrase Made in Occupied Japan. Subminiature Vestkam Made in Occupied Japan.
It is not working properly. So what you see is what you get.
So the price I asked is compatible with a camera that need a CLA (cleaning, lubrification and adjustment). Please see the photos and evaluate by yourself.If you have any doubt, please ask me first. The photos with the listing are of the actual product for sale. Study them carefully to evaluate the cosmetic condition of the item.
