This is said to be the first of the Kodak string-set cameras with an achromatic lens. This rare camera is a genuine Kodak Daylight Kodak, Model C with its extremely rare, special Ground glass, glass plate film adapter back. This camera appears to be one of the earliest of the series as it has the patient dates of 1889-1890 and these cameras were said to be only available from 1891-1895. This camera looks to work -shutter cocks by its string set connected to a brass cocking wheel and the button on the side triggers it. The string looks to be a bit short as I believe it fits through a small hole that feeds to the top of the camera. The waterhouse type apertures rotate , the focus arm on the rear of the camera moves the lens focus properly. The lens is intact and original. One of the small angle ground glass covers appears to be missing. The camera's back has a nice ground glass and has the proper marking "adapter for Daylight Kodak" on its door. This camera has leatherette that is chapping & crumbling. One the bottom of the camera is an attached paper with what looks like, "J.M Lecafentts Wellsville, NY USA " on it.
