      Telling you value is forbidden here, but the dates are patent dates for various aspects of the camera-- such as the roll-film advance mechanism, the lenses, the autographic metal stylus (it lets you write directly on the film before developing), etc.

      Here is some info about your camera. I'm traveling and will not have access to my complete library until early April.

      Anyhow, the No.3A Folding Pocket Kodak series was incredibly popular with several hundred thousand made and sold. It is considered to be the most popular of Kodak's folding roll film cameras. The "3A" designation means that the camera shot 3-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch format pictures. The entire run of No.3A Folding pocket series was made from 1903 to roughly 1919 (according to listings appearing in my digitized library of Kodak catalogues). Model C was from 1912 - 1915.

      Your camera is a little easier to pin down because it has two very specific features: an autographic stylus (1915-1935) and the Autotime shutter scale (1910 - 1922). In reviewing the catalogues, both features only appeared on the 1915 model of your camera.

      Forgot to add that the camera sold for $27.50 in 1915 (with the automatic shutter and rapid rectilinear lens) plus $1 to include the Autotime scale.

      Is talking about value forbidden here so that their partner that they link to can make more on appraisals? If so that's pretty ridiculous.
