Fed 1e
1941-1941

Less than 11,000 FED 1e cameras were manufactured in 1941 with new 'FED Zavod' engraving:
ФЭД завод им. ФЭДзержинского г. Харьков
(FED zavod im. FEDzerzhinskogo g. Kharkov)
(FED factory named after F.E.Dzerzhinsky city of Kharkov)
.
According to sovietcams.com and zenitcamera.com the jurisdiction changed from NKVD to NKAP on Febuary 22nd, 1941. That might be the reason for this new engraving without NKVD. Several passports dated to 1941 exist, including one for a FED 1d #164716 dated March 18th, 1941 and papers for a FED S (type e) #180024 found by Yuri Davidenko dated July 31st, 1941. Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union during WWII started on June 22nd, 1941, which led to the closure of the FED factory and a partial evacuation to Berdsk in Siberia. According to zenitcamera.com the evacuation of the FED factory was ordered on September 16th, 1941. This would mean that serials up to 185.xxx could still be manufactured before the German assault on Kharkov in October 1941. There was no camera production during the war in Berdsk. In late 1942 the equipment, engineers and technicians of the FED factory were transferred from Berdsk to the KMZ and KOMZ factories. After the war in June 1945 it was decided to restore FED camera production in Berdsk from scratch. In September 1945 it was ordered to produce 'Red Flag'. The first FED camera made in Berdsk was produced in January 1946. A production of high quality FED 1e in Berdsk from scratch seems unlikely, left over parts of FED 1e were transferred to KOMZ in 1942 and it wasn't ordered to produce FED 1e in Berdsk. All FED 1e cameras seem to have been manufactured in Kharkov. However this is disputed but the cameras produced in Berdsk might have been FED NKAP 'Red-Flag'.
