1938-39 Speed Candid was the first American made camera with a cloth focal plane shutter. Features include an extinction meter, a non-coupled rangefinder, and lens interchangeablity. Pretty impressive for a 1938 bakelite bodied camera. Fairly uncommon. This example has a standard Graf Perfex Anastigmat f3.5 5omm lens and the last picture shows the camera woith a Wollensak Raptar Perfex f3.5  101mm lens. Surely a rare beastie.
