Hello everyone, I'm the widow of a photographer, and I've been selling his darkroom and camera equipment here on APUG since about January. I have three old fold cameras, and my local APUG angels have given me descriptions of them and their conditions, but I canNOT get them open to photograph them for classified ads. I'm afraid to force anything because they're pretty old.
The #3-A Autographic Kodak Jr., I can't even get the case open. It's got a latch with a button but the button appears to be solid brass of one piece with the faceplate; there's a teeny keyhole with a little brass nub showing, but the nub won't budge noway, nohow. The others aren't in a separate carrying case.
If anyone would like to help me out with a walk-through I would be most grateful! I have taken detailed, up-close photos I can email to you so you can see details better, but I see that I can't upload the images directly here.
Any advice will be highly appreciated! My email address is email@example.com.
