This affordable box camera by Kodak introduced in 1914 was built in cardboard in order to reduce its price. It uses 127 film, a rare medium format film but still available.

Everything seemed in good condition but the shutter didn't work properly sometimes, so I took appart the front panel to clean the mechanism and the mirrors of the viewfinders. Everything looks now and the camera is ready for light leaks checking.
