The Argus C2 was produced between 1938 and 1942. Production started on the C models in 1938 which had the same brick features ontil sales finally slumped in 1966. Nicknamed "The Brick" due to its size, shape, and rugged durability. This one has an original Argus Tele-Sandmar 100 mm lens with original lens hood and lacks the flash synch mounting holes on the side which designates it as a C2. All original, working, and in great shape. The two tone tan Match-matic C3 model became very popular after being shown in a Harry Potter movie.
