Revue 3 version 2 (FED 3b)
1972-1976

Another serie of the Revue 3, a FED 3b made for Foto-Quelle, West-Germany.
The body reads "Revue 3" in serigraphy. It was engraved on the precedent serie.
The lens is always the Fed/Industar-61 zebra (F421 by Princelle).
This camera is not so easy to find.

Foto-Quelle catalog Winter 1972/73, page 32:
DM 99 camera with Industar-61
DM 24,50 case
DM 99 Jupiter-12
DM 159 Jupiter-9
DM 119 Jupiter-11
DM 69 Uni-VF

Pictured camera: #740608 (on the shoe).

Known serial number range (please extend the range with your serials):
7-digit serial number on the backside of the top:
#8503622(sovietcams.com) to #8540363(fotua.com)

It's sad that FED decided to stamp 6-digit serials on the bottom plate of the back door, because those doors can be accidently changed easily.
FED-3, Fed-4 and Fed-5 doors are the same, stamping the serial on the door might have simplified production.
There are big stamped serials (around 21mm long for 6 digits)
and small serials (around 13mm long for 6 digits).
