    Hello everyone,
    Just few days ago I got a camera for few bucks, at first I didn't know what that was untill fine people at P,net helped me solve the name puzzle,
    it is a Ray Gem Camera from 1900. It was built in NY. Now, I took it apart to clean it and cover it with new "skin" since the old was cracked and 98% of it was missing. I did notice that the camera doesn't have a latch in the back and the plate holder is missing. Does anyone here know of a place where I could either see the original plate holder (and make it myself) or buy one. Also the latch mechanism.
    Thank you very much
