This Lucky Strike Spy Camera was developed for the U.S. Signal Corps between 1949-1950 and features a f/2.7 17.5mm Sonnar-type lens set behind a four-speed focal plane shutter, all housed within a Lucky Strike wrapper. The camera is capable of taking 18 exposures per roll of 16 mm film, and is complemented by a light meter which is disguised as a Ohio Safety Match Box. Although this was never deployed or used by the army, only two known spy cameras made. This package will set you back a cool $41,000 – 65,000 USD at the Bonhams auction coming up on December 3.
