No Name Kiev second version 1964
1964-1964

Kiev 4a (unmarked)
factory: Arsenal - V.I. Lenin/ Kiev, Ukraine, USSR

Pictured camera:
body serial: #6401377
lens: Jupiter-8, 50mm f2
lens serial: #6439544


notes : Original unmarked leather & chrome case ... The Kiev "No-Name" were made for sale in the United States and other countries (Canadian distributors) at a time when political "Cold War" tension was quite high between the Soviet Union and the West, due to the 1962 Cuban Missle Crisis among other things. They were made in 1963 and 1964. The 1963 units usually were fitted with a genuine Carl Zeiss Sonnar 50mm f. 1.5 lens, and so without the Kiev name, they looked quite German rather than Soviet. These cameras are also usually engraved on the back, "USSR OCCUPIED GERMANY". The 1964 units often came with the Jupiter-8 lens, and don't have that engraving on the back.

The Kiev "No Name" cameras also have a finer quality chrome finish than the typical Kiev from that era.
