"+Mikki Michelle I will take it to my friend who happens to be a local camera repair joint, perhaps he has the secret to open it without damage to the body. If he opens it, I will process the film to see if there is still a latent image on that film. Btw, I have quite a few other antique cameras, including my Century brand 11x14 wooden view camera from the turn of the SECOND TO LAST CENTURY. Around 1890. I will start posting them as the weather improves soon."
