All variations of this nice folding Brownie camera feature a morocco grained imitaion leather covering and folding optical frame finder.

Except for the optical frame finder, the Kodette II lens model is essentially the same as the pre-war version named the Six-20 Folding Brownie.

Fun Facts:
This camera could have been released under two different names. It was being manufactured with different lenses, one Meniscus and one Dakon, with significant differences. I'm sometimes surprised at details like this and that Kodak would decide to produce virtually two different cameras with the same name at the same time.
