An incredible archive of rare vintage spy cameras that would rival James Bond's own collection has emerged for sale for (400,000 pounds). Among the rarities is one of only two existing examples of the Lucky Strike Spy Camera developed for the US Signal Corps between 1949 and 1950. The camera, made by the Mast Development Corp, was built to fit inside the outer wrapper from a packet of Lucky Strike cigarettes. Despite its size it was capable of taking 18 x 16mm still photographs with varying shutter speeds, but ultimately it was rejected. It is worth around (43,000 pounds).
But ... sorry.
Even the most clever spy-cameras are not concealable in some circumstances.
