Congrats, Reinhart, and thanks for the passport, always very useful for these cameras.
But I read 1949 for the date, no? It should be amazing for a Fed NKVD (probably) made in 1940
Amitiés à toi.

hi jacques,

I think it's 42. there is a "9" above and several "2"s in the receipt. I attach a bigger image.

The line above the date means the lens?

That would be quite strange to have the lens before the date with the first 2 digits missing and then after the date the body with complete serial.

However, congratulations, very nice Fed.

Everyone started with the first camera, hahaha, enjoy collecting.

that's a funny coincidence indeed, I had not seen it. but I can't read russian, so I do not know what the paper really says...

Yes, Lenny, this passport is a bit strange for a prewar Fed.
It's the first time I see a price, and thsre is no address of factory, for example.
Would it be a bill rather than a passport?

Anyway, it would be useful to have a translation of this paper. If somebody could... Thanks!

From this passport i can see the camera was bought in Moskow in 1942 in Московское управление торговли культтоварами.
There are signs of inspector and of consignor. The paper is rather something like good issue from shop.
Such goods as FED was not on free market. There was no free market in USSR and distribution of such important goods like FEDs was controlled by state administration.

Maybe this is from a workshop. This lens was calibrated to the camera body. No other stamp was made on the lens, so you keep this receipt to document that calibration was made.
To me, it was in 1940, the year when this body should be produced. Maybe a replacement for a faulty body. Who knows, translation is needed.
This would explain why only the last 4 digits of the lens were written on the receipt. If this camera/lens combination would be original and new, the lens should have a much higher serial number. Could be, this is the lens the previous owner bought new and after his new camera body got faulty he got a replacement camera body calibrated to his old lens.

I could read almost all words. I cannot read the first word covered by ink. Second word coverd by ink is подробное which means "detailed".
In title is written that this is receipt from special shop number 18 which is placed in Moscow in Московское управление торговли культтоварами. I can see number of camera but I don't see last 3 digits of the lens here.
There is signature of director of the shop too below signatures of inspector and of consignor. There is a price given in digits and in words.
Below there is empty fields to put new price and signs.

the seller, who is a russian from moscow, told me that this is a receipt from a commission shop (which is a second hand shop). they were quite common in russia and they still are. in those days it was mandatory to make any second hand sale via a commission shop.

So, it was sold in 1942 as a second hand camera.
The lens can have been changed, of course, as Lenny says: we don't have the original passport. But it can be original too: the lens has often a higher s/n than the body, but not always.

Great so it is solved.
I had problems with word комиссионный. It could come from second hand shop or from committee.
But I still don't undestand line with year 1942 and with the first word covered by ink.

I caught this early Lieningrad yesterday at a local camera fair for its viewfinder.My other two 61xxxx and 63xxxx Lieningrad cameras all have a broken viewfnder that is not possible to repair. This one seems to have a viewfinder that has a solid metal base. I guess this 001848 Lieningrad was made in 1958? It is still in excellent cosmetic condition.Here are some images of the camera and comparison of details with my 1961 one.

Cheers,

Zhang

Some more details images of 001848 and a 61xxxx Lieningrad. Winding and rewind nobs are not exactly the same.
BTW, this defective lieningrad cost about the same as a Nikon F3 and 4x as a Pentax SP at the same market.:) But a vintage Chinese movie lens 20/1.4 in Arriflex standard mount for 35mm camera cost five times as much as a Nikon F3!

I couldn't wait to open it to see if I bought a camera with a good viewfinder. If not, my money was wasted. Here it is. A good viewfinder and a parts camera. But I think with a new cloth coutain, I could bring it back to a functioning camera.
The metal base of my 63xxxx camera is full of cracks, but the 001848 one looks much better. I also found that the film pressure plate of the early camera is different although they could be made of the same material (glass?).
Perhaps I sould have posted the messages in a camera repair section?

Two of my Leicas, a 1930 I(A)with a close focus lens, and a 1932 I(E) standard.
Yes, I am OT. But after all, these cameras are the grand-parents of our Fed 1a-s!

Jacques, they really look nice :-)

Some of my new findings:

A Horizont with red label and some differences to normal ones.

First, the digits on the frame counter are bigger:



Second, there is a fixing screw for the viewfinder:



At least it comes with both filters and bakelite grip:



----------------------

Next is an I-50 enlarger lens, looks nice:



----------------------

And this fine Zorki Stereo Set with enlarger mask, viewer and box:

Nice stereo set, Ulrich! Mine is not complete: I miss the mask.
Here, another Fed. An early 1a, the # 1453 in fact, with a correct "1 turn" lens.
Compared to my other later 1a-s, this one has a different vulcanite and an assembling a bit uneven. That "smells the beginning". Happy to get it!

Arrived a few weeks ago just before my holidays. A direct parcel from Ukraine with:
An Universal VF for a client.
A J-9 for Kiev/Contax 1961 for US$ 25.
A J-12 for Kiev/Contax 1984 for free.

Together with my Kiev-4AM and the J-8M a good combination. A VF-1 I have already so a good combi with that Jupiter-12 F/2,8-35mm lens.

I will develop the first film with these new optics, a Bergger BRF400 plus (OrWo Filmotec N74+ ) in Pyrocat-HDC soon.

One of the very rare Jena Contax with the double numbering: Jena and Kiev. Thanks, Alexey! And hats off!
A very interesting detail: the accessory shoe is on the Dresden side: rounded and not square, like on Jena ones. But others share this same feature.

It's curious that 1948 BK lenses don't have a Zeiss number at the rear... I have 1951/52 Jup 12 which have this number. Perhaps because they are LTM??

A 47 Kiev here, s/n 47168, with a 2/5cm Sonnar and a beautiful pigskin bag:

http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/2912017_1.jpg

It is on the Jena side, like the early s/n 47058 on Sasaki's book.
But impossible to find this book. If you have one which is read, or if you can lend me yours.... Thanks if you can share.

Amitiés. Jacques.

Nobody concerning the Sasaki?
