a bit more info 


Coronet is a folding bed or self-erecting 120 film camera series, manufactured by Coronet Camera Co., Birmingham, UK and produced between 1920s-1940s.
Coronet Camera Co. linked up with Tiranty of Paris after WW2 to produce cameras and avoid French import restrictions. These cameras were usualy have "Made in France" stamping and French instructions on controls.

Coronet folding 120 film cameras have several variations in body style and lens equipment were sold under this general name in Coronet's catalogs. Normally they have no model identification on the camera itself. Meniscus models are typically not self-erecting. Self-erecting style available with Achromatic f/7.7 or f/6.3 lens. The coloured models are more expensive in the collectors world nowadays. [1]

The photo royone posted is of a coronet midget.   Is this photo similar to your camera?  The receipt image is still a tiny size by the way

Des


I don't think there is any way via the PM facility for sending images it would have to be by email. Try going to the "Birmingham photos and Video's" on the front page of the forum and following the instructions at the top of the page "Uploading Photos" put there by Chris the forum owner. You might be able to see where you are going wrong.
