Hi guys, it's my first topic.

I'm Luigi and I write from Italy

I have a problem and I would like your help.

A friend sells a Zenit 1 (first type) at a good price.
I checked his serial number and I had many doubts and curiosity to understand.
The camera has 6 numbers and the first two are 58 ...
How is it possible?

Many thanks ...

Hi Luigi,
is it perhaps 53 ? '3' on the Zenits from 1953 could be mixed up with '8', then in 1954 the serial number inscription became different, '3' looked very different from '8'. Do you have a photo?

no ... is 8 !!! 589889
I can not determine what produced this.

the Industar 22 lens has the serial number 546483

no, this must be not Zenit-S. Rather the missing first digit on a Zenit from 1955.

I thought about this, but Zenit S (C) always has seven or eight digits for the serial number.

Hi Luigi

Looks like a misengraveing for me too. It's a 1954 camera I think with an according lens. BTW: Wellcome to the forum!

Best wishes - Guido

Thanks so much Guido !!
I am madly in love with Soviet cameras.
I own too many ... but they are never enough!
