Here is a AGFA Pioneer PD16 rollfilm camera manufactured in Ansco's Binghamton, New York, factory beginning around 1940 till 1943. This is the 616 model which produces a 2½” x 4¼” negatives. The camera is metal-bodied, with a resin-plastic lens barrel. The Pioneer uses a curved film plane in an attempt to better match the field curvature of its one-element lens. Until 1943, the company was still using the Agfa Ansco brand, and so this original model has Agfa Pioneer above the lens. The shutter button is on top of the body, and a lever under the lens to switch between 'I' (ca. 1/50 sec.) and 'B' shutter mode.

This camera shows a lot of ware. Has some light rusting, scuffs and paint loss. Shutter works as it should, camera has not been film tested.
