1938 ad for "THE CAMERA WITH THE ELECTRIC EYE", showing the $225 price
The folding clam-shell design was by Joseph Mihalyi and styled
by Walter Dorwin Teague. This incorporated crank winding and a
coupled rangefinder
The Super Six-20 was not a great success due to its enormously
high price - $225 USD (app. $3,500 USD in 2009), much more than
a contemporary Leica - and a reputation for unreliability.
Kodak employees had nicknamed it "the boomerang" for its
regular returns for service. It was withdrawn in 1944;
production estimates vary between 714 and 725 being made;
719 is the most common guess.

    These Kodaks are such beautiful cameras. I am always keeping my eyes open for one of these but the prices tag is something that is hard to swallow. One of the only Kodaks I would consider owning. Great camera.
