There is an interesting fact about the camera and the date of the capsule's burial which was not noted in the Guardian article. The Bantam model actually in production at the time of the 1939 World's Fair was not the Flash Bantam, but rather the Bantam 4.5. The Flash Bantam was not marketed until 1947. Given the similarity of the two cameras, it is certainly not unlikely that the company had a pre-production example ready to go into the capsule, but I have not seen any evidence of that before.
