I've always wanted one of these as well - but $5? I'm definitely living in the wrong hemisphere as I've never seen them that cheap in AU - and as for Evilbay, if you have a spare $75 hanging around, you can grab yourself a real bargain!!
Many cameras were sold in much different numbers in different countries. So far within the last years in only saw three Kodak Brownies at fleamarkets and two of them even coming from Belgium.
