It is very difficult to find a pristine Pathe' as they were heavily used and generally modified and updated. They are leather covered and the nearly one hundred year old leather is usually dry and damaged way beyond being salvageable. The leather on this camera looks to be original and is in great condition.
Mechanically this camera is in wonderful condition. The movement cranks easily and smoothly. It still has an original Pathe crank and is quite clean and free of bronze disease. The interior is in wonderful condition and looks beautiful
