Looks a little big for 110. I believe you have a 35mm bulk film holder that would have been used with a motor-drive 35mm SLR camera. Pentax made several versions over the years to fit its motor-drive compatible bodies. Goggle "Pentax bulk film back".


BTW...I believe the number on the top is the serial number rather than the part number.

That looks like a film holder for one of the early K-mount SLRs.

One thing is for sure, it's oddly beautiful (IMHO) - clean, undamaged, black, and Pentax-branded!

You're in luck! You can buy a matched "Pentax Bulk Film Magazine for MX Cameras" from evilBay right here:
Vintage Asahi Pentax Bulk Film Magazine MX 16498 250 Exposure Camera | eBay

Only $500!! (Of course, it's been listed and relisted at the price for a long time now...)

There's even a video explaining what it is/ how it works!
