    I had one like this that was made in 1921. I found everything I needed to know about it on the Kodak web site. Pretty common but worth a few dollars.

    The camera looks to be a No.3 or No.3A Folding Pocket Kodak. Pull off the back and take a look at the model name and version (i.e. B-3, B-4, E-4 and such) etched into the inside. With the model variation, if you also include the s/n (usually on the back of the folding stand), I can pin the camera down. As background, this was a very popular camera with approximately 288,000 No.3's and over 360,000 No.3A's sold.

    Thanks for the info. Its a 3-A model B4. I don't see the SN number. Really nice piece to sit around yet not going to make anything in a sale it sounds like. Thanks for all your help.

    Model B-4 was offered from June 1908 to about April 1909. Based on factory records of the s/n range, a little over 21,000 of this particular version was manufactured. In excellent and working condition, the average collector value is approximately $40.
