This camera was THE travel of the 1960's. When the Jet age started and everyone could afford to travel the world for the first time. This was the camera everyone had.

My Grandparents had one, most likely YOUR grandparents had one!

The GSN was a Rangefinder camera which was what the world used when you wanted something better then an Instamatic and before they had electronic point and shoot cameras with auto focus.

They had a viewfinder with two spots where you would converge two images to ensure your image was in focus.

I found this camera at a junk store in New Mexico.
