1949-51 Brownie Hawkeye Flash in good shape. Good example of a typical 1950s design. I think we can all agree that the 1950s had an appealing and unique feel.

    Any idea how much this is worth, without the flash attachment. Very good condition. Lost to Mom and Dad's attic since the 50s.

    These cameras were incredibly popular in their time and thus quite common today. Therefore, they aren't worth very much; maybe $5 or so.
    There were a few different versions made though. The one shown above is the most common. There was also a variant that was not made to accept the flash attachment. That one is less common than the flash model, but not worth much more. That one can be identified easily, as it will not say the word "flash" on the nameplate.
    There was also a French version worth a bit more. That one will say "MADE IN FRANCE" on the nameplate.

    I have a Brownie Hawkeye in excellent condition and it is in the origanal box, even has bulbs for the flash. Do you think it is worth anything?

    Please read my comment above, Janet. Even in mint condition with all the accessories, they're not worth much. They're extremely common.
