The announcement of the original "Russian Leica", the first FED 35mm camera, was made in January 1933 in issue #1 of Proletarian Photo magazine. Here are photos of the covers of the magazine, the article announcing the FED, and some other interesting pages of this historic issue. Only about 30 of these cameras were made by the F.E. Dzerjinski Communards, and so far as we know, none are known to exist in collections. This magazine is in my collection.
