Chronology of cameras Argus 

Traduction de Manuel M

The Golden Shield is technically identical to C3 Matchmatiic.

Its existence is explained by the membership, at the time of its manufacture, of Argus  to the group Sylvania (bulbs) which also held a named company “Golden Shield Corporation of Great Neck, NY”. This company distributed under its name of the products having nothing to do with the photography. (source: Argomania of Henry J. Gambino)

The front face is covered with a metallized decoration. The plate of usual identification is replaced by a specific plate.
