|$3,500 CAD MINOX RIGA spy camera. Serial number 08798 dates this one to 1939-1940 production. These were used by the Allies (MI6, OSS etc.), Nazis, Soviets (KGB, GRU) (who played on both sides) etc. This one is complete with the even more rare special Minox leather purse. Both camera and purse appear to be in excellent condition. The purse is not damaged and has been with the camera for a long time as the leather has moulded itself to the camera. The zipper is fine and the camera seems to operate normally though I have not tested it with film but I have no reason to doubt that it would work. I purchased this camera in Portland, Oregon some years ago. It is thus very possible that it was used by the OSS in WWII. It comes with one film cartridge. The Crypto Museum states that "Minox Riga cameras are extremely rare today and the ones that have survived are often in deteriorated condition. ...eBay ... cameras are often built from post-war spare part finds."|
| ||$300 CAD MINOX B spy camera with Minox Copying Stand. Serial number 714 031 which dates it to 1961, the height of the First Cold War. A favourite of Worldwide Intelligence agencies such as MI-6, CIA, KGB, GRU etc. "James Bond 007", if he was real, would have used one. Both camera and stand are complete and in excellent condition. Camera appears to be functional. No film cartridge.
