The Brownie Special No. 2 camera is a basic 120 film box camera with a Doublet lens and has 2 reflecting viewfinders. This model was probably the last 120 film Brownie box camera to be produced by Kodak in the USA.
The Brownie Special No. 2 cameras were produced for export during a time that Kodak was unable to successfully supply six-20 film worldwide. Six-20 format cameras were introduced and popular in the US.
Though produced for export, a few were sold in the US in 1933 as part of a Christmas special for dealers. Additionally, 2000 of the cameras were used as the Chicago World's Fair 1933 Century of Progress Brownie camera, which had a beautifully redesigned faceplate.
The rest of the Brownie Special No. 2 cameras were exported with the majority going to the Australian market.
This model is harder to find than most other Brownie cameras.
