View-Master Model H - Two distinctly different shapes of ViewMaster both called H




The View-Master Model H was produced between 1966 and 1981 and was only available in lighted versions. The lenses were made from plastic. There are two distinctly different versions, those produced in Belgium, being much squarer than their American counterpart.

These viewers are another example of a viewer that was produced at certain times by both Sawyers and GAF. earlier USA Model H viewers had a snap-on back plate that acted as a battery cover, later ones can be identified because the cover is secured by two screws. Both the beige Belgium and USA viewers below have a long film advance levers, which are less common than the short advance lever models.

The Belgian Model H  was produced in two variants, one with a short advance lever and the other with long advance lever as show below.

An example of the Sawyers USA View-Master Model H Lighted Viewer (#2062) with long advance lever. Notice the metal plate on battery compartment cover (later housings had moulded plastic as seen below)

Another variant of the USA GAF Model H Lighted Viewer, this time by GAF. Not only the colour is different but also it has a short advance lever and moulded logo on the back plate.
