Antique H.C. White Perfecscope Copper Flash Stereoscope Viewer and 50 Keystone Stereoscope View Cards in Box.
Stereoscope does show wear and the handle stands on its own, but must be supported with a finger behind when using to view. I'm not sure if this is how it came, or if a piece is broken that supported the handle. Both lens are present and in very good condition.
Viewer measures about 13 inches front to back, viewing end 5 1/4 inches wide, and piece that holds the stereoview card measures about 7 1/4 inches wide.
Cards all came in the black box marked "Keystone Stereographs" Title: Butterflies. There are only a couple of Butterflies in the mix. The rest are an assortment of views. All are pictured in the photos below. All are in excellent condition.
