Ciao guys !

I have an Fed-1 (C) NKVD with serial number 56450 (1937/1939).
Following the indications of sovietcams.com, determined by serial number, the camera is of the PE0225 type.
The detail that escapes me is that this model should have small bolt - bottom plate holder.

Conversely mine has bigger bolt - bottom plate holder !
Always following sovietcams.com those with the bigger bolt,should be between serial numbers 80.000-87.000 about.

Ask how it is possible ? Thanks a lot. Luigi from Italy

Hi Luigi,

Yes, you should have a small pin instead of a big one with such a serial number. And too the round part of the shoe should be in contact with the vulcanite, without any space.

Probably your Fed was repaired and parts mixed, which is not rare. But what a neat and beautiful engraving...

Amitiés. Jacques.
