I remember flying into MCE in 1990. There was no baggage claim. Passengers got off the plane, walked through the terminal (about 50 Feet if that) go out the front door and into the parking lot. Bags were delivered by opening the gate from the airfield and the rampers pushed the baggage cart into the parking lot.

Are you sure that wasn't Launceston?? (I won't use the colloquial term for fear of offending) Cos they definately do that there; as far as I know, HBA has had baggage claim carousel (yes 1) for quite a long time.

Mount Pleasant Airport, Falkland Islands:
For Lan Chile flights the baggage is unloaded out of the hold straight onto the tarmac. The pax come down the steps and just walk around to the starboard side and pick their bags up.
Another wierd one is Kabul airport. There is a baggage reclaim, but the funny stuff happens on boarding. You check your hold baggage in as normal in the (chaotic) check in area. The bags are then taken to the aircraft on the back of a flat bed van, where they are unceremonially thrown onto the tarmac just in front of the forward hold. The passengers then have to queue up to load their own bags into the hold themselves!

I visited the tiny airline terminal at Delaware County Airport in Muncie, IN, while I was down there in 1999 to take my MCAT exam.
The terminal had just one gate, one ticket counter (United Express), and I don't think there was much of a baggage claim area (if you could even call it that)! No security checkpoint, either, that I can remember.
The tiny terminal was empty (it must have been after business hours).
Another tiny terminal I have visited is the one at LAF (Purdue University Airport) in Lafayette, IN, when there was one airline serving it--Northwest Airlink--a few years ago. I doubt it even had any baggage claim!

Seems to me that CVO (Corvallis, OR) does not have a baggage claim. But this is only a mostly GA Airport that has only seen very limited air service. Most recently was the now defunct Harbor Air had some sort of service to PDX...
