Agfa Billy Record II

This is a 1950's Agfa Billy Record II. Its a 120 rollfilm folding camera which takes 8 pictures 6cm x 9cm in size. The Billy Record II is in the middle of the Billy Record range, lacking only the
rangefinder of the Billy Record III. When bought, it worked fine - but rapidly developed a fault where the shutter would not stay set. Fortunately - this proved to be trivial to fix and the camera works very nicely now.

This one cost 15 at a UK camera fair in very good condition complete with leather ever ready case. This was quite a good buy and the normal price for an example of this camera would be more like 25.
