Bell & Howell Foton #697074 with Cooke Amotal 2 Inch f/2 #301703. The camera has no dents, but US GOVT BAC #NO. 6746 is crudely engraved on the top and some spots of lost chrome on the back door trim. Otherwise, minor finish wear/deterioration. The camera winds and shoots properly in single and burst modes. Shutter speeds look and sound crisp and correct. Viewfinder and rangefinder images are clean and bright, but the image movement lags behind the control and slows to a crawl then stops moving at about 5 feet. The alloy barrel Taylor, Taylor & Hobson Cooke Amotol is tarnished (typical, I think). Scattered faint scratches on front and rear elements.
