I got a Ricoh KR10 (well I paid for halfish from paper round earnings) for a birthday when I was about 12 or 13. One day while in the garden taking pics of flowers or something I knocked my camera and tripod over and it ripped the baseplate half off the camera. Surprisingly, it still worked but Dad claimed it on he household insurance. We received a KR-10 Super as a replacement but in the intervening claim/replacement period I'd decided I wanted a Nikon FE, so Dad did a deal with me and kept the Ricoh to use himself and I bought a FE ($$ topped up with more paper round savings). I still have that camera and use it regularly. That would have been 1982 or 1983 I think.
