Subject: ACG - 60th anniv C-3?
Has anyone heard anything recent about the 60th anniversary C-3? I spoke
with Kay Linda (sp?) at Argus about a month ago, and things seemed a bit
vague then. I checked the Hammacher-Schlemmer website yesterday and they're
not listing it.
Kay Linda said there was some chance Argus would make some of the C-3s
available directly to collectors; apparently they have a contract with H-S
for a certain number of them, so I guess that depends on how many they

Last time I talked to Kalinda, the target date was father's day. At that time
they were looking for 350 C3's for the 60th ann. model. Haven't heard about
some for collectors. I mentioned it to the people at Argus, but they didn't
seem very interested. Maybe they have had a change of heart.

Phillip, I don't know about Argus' marketing plans, but they are not
building these cameras, they are refurbishing them out of those
purchased from private parties. I sold my Match-Matic to them for
$25.00, and there was even a mention of Argus buying back cameras in
Shutterbug last month.
