This camera has also been manufactured as the Falcon Press Flash, the Galter Press Flash, and the Regal Flash Master. Made from 1939 to 1950, it is known as the first camera with a built-in flash reflector.
This mint example is unusual because of the uncommon faceplate design, and because it's made of brown bakelite rather than the usual black.

    You're not kidding about them being uncommon. I have yet to see one pop up on an online auction other then the common black ones.

    There was a guy who "flickr-mailed" me years ago, asking me to let him know if I ever saw one become available. Well, one came up for sale on Etsy just last month, so I emailed the guy and he snatched it up ($35+10).

    I love Etsy as I find it's so much easier to grab up stuff sometime. Well, if you ever see another one of these anywhere, you'll have to let me know ;).
