An unusual TLR, by the Waldorf Camera Company
This is a vintage twin-lens reflex camera, the Waldorf Minicam, manufactured about the year 1940 by the Waldorf Camera Company in Chicago.
The camera is in mint condition, considering its age and in perfect operating condition.
This is a rare and very collectible Bakelite TLR.
The Waldorf has no dents, dings, cracks, scratches, rust, corrosion, etc.
The shutter works fine and the film transport turns easily.
The camera will be shipped with one empty 127 film spool.

There seem to be some look-a-likes, all made in Chicago in the late 1930's-early 1940's, similar cameras, fitted with different face plates. I was not able to find any reference to this exact model.
Because of its rarity, the price is $140 + $10 shipping.
The value is not based on the "superb" Graf optics, for sure!
