With the camera you would receive a pamphlet and an entry from for the Wheaties Sensational Camera Contest. This contest encouraged children to enter the photos taken with their camera for a chance to win a trip to the 1949 Worlds Series and have their photo published in Look Magazine.
The camera has some darkening to the top knob but is in otherwise good condition. It fires but has not been tested with film.
The pamphlet has wear and tear and small piece of the paper is missing on the front, please see the photos.
