The Kodak Brownie was a long-running popular series of simple and inexpensive box cameras made by Eastman Kodak, first introduced in 1900. The Kodak Brownie Hawkeye, where the box was made of black Bakelite, was introduced in 1949, and made until 1961. The flash outfit was introduced in 1950. The Hawkeye uses a meniscus lens and a rotary shutter, taking 12 images on 620 film (adaptable to 120), and producing 6x6 cm negatives.
This No. 177L flash outfit comes with the camera, flash unit, original box, and even a vintage dead Ray-O-Vac battery. It was well used with wear on the body and flash reflector, knobs, and box. The box has the harder to find cover art of the No. 177L model. A price of $2 written on the box, which has wear, and the foil liner to the inner box was lost (some pieces inside). The shutter works, the inside is clean, and the price is right for this camera in well-used condition.
