USAAF Aerial Photography Camera?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I just came back from the collectors market in Portland, Oregon with a pretty cool piece. I believe it is a USAAF Aerial Camera. But this one looks a bit different from all the other ones I've seen on Google. If anyone could give me a date and more info about this piece. Thanks, Coltie.
