DeVry Box Camera Shutter Speed?

Recommended Posts

I found an old (perhaps 1930's) DeVry box camera at my parents house. Very simple design: a viewer finder on top, footage counter, c-mount lens thread, with a 100 ft capacity. 

I was thinking of taking it for a spin just for the fun of it. 

I was wondering if anyone has an idea or a best guess on what the shutter is on it? Close to 180? I wanted to get a sense when metering. I know it's a basic camera I just don't want to be so far off with my exposure that I get washed out footage or something too murky. 

Thanks!
