    Looks like a fixed-focus 12x20 vertical. Who knows whatever it was made for.

    Where is it being auctioned? When I searched the Zip site I couldn't find where it is being auctioned at (but I did open above on my phone which maybe cut out that info)

    It's in the middle of NY state, I emailed the auctioneer about it and he just replied that he has no idea what it is and doesn't care to check. I would guess that the lens is probably a pretty good find if it covered 12x20?

    The camera looks like a "This could come in useful" space waster

    It looks like a homemade rotating panoramic camera, like a cirkut camera. same mechanism and vertical slit
