    BTW ... maybe you knew this ... but if not ... the reason the label is missing from the top of the camera (and as with your other posted Kodak Instant camera) is that it was included in an instant camera lawsuit won by Polaroid back in 1985. After nine years of litigation, Kodak was banned from making instant cameras starting January 1986. Kodak then announced a trade-in program to exchange cameras for 1 share of common stock or receive a new camera or get $50 in Kodak merchandise. The rebate program was halted in June 1986 because of class action lawsuits asking for a cash rebate option. The final settlement required owners to return the camera's nameplate for a refund of cash and credits. The number of Kodak instant cameras in the market at the time was estimated to be about 16.5 million! Fascinating history.
