I believe it would be impossible to find a better example of this Very Rare and Beautifully Designed Camera. Less than 2,000 were produced. Before production was halted because of the outbreak of war. A rare example with a “pre-war” Compur-Rapid shutter. Please view all the photos of the actual camera to appreciate its Superb condition. From my extensive collection of Rare Vintage cameras. I will be listing hundreds of vintage cameras over the next months because of my age. Please view my other Current. Listings and save the site. It is interesting to note that unfortunately, the Duo SIX-20 was launched in September 1939! Production was halted in May 1940 when the Nagel factory was converted to produce munition timers. After the war Kodak recuperated the factory and decided to concentrate on production of Retina cameras. It is highly unlikely that many of the 2,000 camera reached the U. Making it a really rare and beautiful example and a prize for the most sophisticated vintage camera collector.. I noticed in browsing the Eastman Museum camera collections that, surprisingly, even it has no example of this very rare camera.
