Here’s another nice Pentamatic for our collection. This beauty is in mint factory fresh condition! Only a few traces of past use. This camera was assembled in May 1960… about 6 months after the first one rolled off the assembly line in Yashica’s ultra modern factory in Nagano Prefecture (central Japan). The first half year of production showed a slow run up as approximately 500 units or so were made per month. This one has a serial number of 3,354. By August of 1960, Yashica was building about 1,500 units per month.
This Pentamatic is a fully working example of a beautifully designed camera. We can’t wait to run a roll of film through it and give the camera a good work out!
Thanks for the visit! Peace, Chris and Carol
