Variations:

The first production of this camera, from 1946 until 1953 was available with a plain matte enamel faceplate, a metal or plastic winding knob and a metal or plastic shutter release button.

From 1953-57 the camera changed to a horizontally striped design faceplate, plastic winding knob, and a plastic shutter release button. In addition, 2-pin flash contacts and a triangular spring back catch were added.

Fun Facts:

The Six-20 Brownie Model D is a workhorse of a camera for a great series produced in the UK for 20 years, starting in 1937. These box cameras were made to last using heavy-duty sheetmetal. I come across these cameras often at flea markets and yard sales, and rarely does one not work!
