    I just bought one at the thrift store for $50. It has the attachment case with everything inside, the instruction manual and the cretificate of warranty dated Feb 29, 1932. It needs a belt which the book says was 45 cents, lol.

    The only camera I have is my phone so I can't do any larger. I'll try to get some tomorrow that are clearer.

    It doesn't have the spool case. Any ideas? I searched for 4 hours last night.

    Is it the National that uses a spool in place of a bobbin?

    If so, I'm afraid that you could be in for a real trial, trying to find the spool can. :(
