1940 Vef Minox Riga Spy Camera, Instructions Film & Wwii Photo Album Ft Sheridan For Sale

1940 Vef Minox Riga Spy Camera, Instructions Film & Wwii Photo Album Ft Sheridan

1940 VEF MINOX RIGA Spy Camera, Made in Latvia this is very first generation (stainless steel body) of this classic camera. TheSerial # 08056 dates it to around 1940 (I believe.) Camera measures only 3-1/8" long x 1" wide. Also included are the originalInstructions (in English) and the original Certificate which has the serial # on it. The certificate is in two pieces. The instructions have been well used, folded in half and stored (with the camera) in an old GE light meter case (included.) Also included is a roll of developed film with images on it and a small film canister. The images do not seem to be ones that are represented in the photo album.
I acquired the camera and this WWII Photo Album together so I am assuming they were from the same owner (but I can't guarantee it.). The album is full of pictures many of them at Fort Sheridan and the owner was a Corporal and is clearly identified in pictures and a postcard of his unit dated Jan 19th 1944. Many of the photos contain hand-written descriptions on the back. Several contain references to cameras (trying out the new camera. etc.) and I believe he may have printed some of the pictures himself as well. I do not know if any of these photos were taken with the Minox or not. Several photos are poorly focused or overexposed. There are about a dozen un-mounted loose photos in the back as well.
As I stated in the description: Camera is complete and cosmetically in great condition. The shutter fires and the film advance/counter works. I can't say for sure if the camera is in good working condition or not so I'm not guaranteeing anything. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
All for one money. Don't miss this unique WWII collectible lot.
