This cardboard camera is in sound condition, though a little worn at the edges. Probably had a spring on the shutter originally.
Lens is present, but no films.
Some corrosion on metal parts.

See the Collectiblend online price guide for Clemente "Le Paris" for comparison.

As I said before, I don't have any flm for this camera.
