    It's an odd request. The old Kodak folding cameras (Vigilant Six-16 is one example) had a small prism/mirror type viewfinder on the lens assembly (like this). I want one of these (just the viewfinder). Ideally the glass will be clean -- no rust or spots.

    These cameras don't go for much on eBay (ten dollars or so), as it seems they're pretty ubiquitous still. So I'm hoping someone has an old or broken one for parts.

    Thanks.

    (If anyone knows of a similar type device -- that is, a small self-contained prism/mirror type viewfinder -- I'd be interested in hearing about it. See this thread.)

    These are known as "brilliant finders," which might help if you're doing an eBay search. Drop me a note offline. I can take a look and see what I have.
