Wall Street Notes
Value of Collecting Cameras
--by Doug Graham
Proof of the popularity of collecting antique and classic cameras can be found no further than The Wall Street Journal. The venerated spokespublication for the world's business community ran a feature story on cameras in its Weekend Journal's Collecting column on Friday, March 26, 1999.

Quoted in the article was none other than KRPhoto.com's own Ken Riley. Riley and other leading experts in the antique and classic camera field detail the value of everything from a gold plated, lizard skin Leica "Luxus" that sold for $60,000 to a Kraft "Velveeta Shells and Cheese Dinner" camera worth $28.
Included too in the article, written by WSJ staff reporter Eileen Kinsella, is information about movie and spy cameras.
Riley noted that the Polaroid Model 185 made in the 1960s can fetch up to $400 or more. Riley is one of the foremost experts on the Polaroid line.
The article can be purchased on-line at The Wall Street Journal's web site for $2.95 or should be available at your local library.
