A historically significant model, this is thought to be the first coupled rangefinder camera model ever sold, beginning circa 1916[1]. Its 1916 price of USD $109.50 would be equivalent to over $2,200 today[2].

While the 3A was designed to make 3-1/4" x 5-1/2" exposures on Kodak's A122 film, the similar No. 1A Autographic Kodak Special of 1917 was made for the smaller A116 film size.
