So here's a question to discuss over this weekend.. which colored coverings for FED 5 series were real factory and which were not? Which of the FED 5 series had genuine black tops and which did not? Almost seemed to confused me due to the slew of painted or not FED 5's available.

I would definitely like to create some kind of guide by which to determine this.

Thanks

Vlad

I have seen black/silver ones. And a special edition exists, brown leather (real ugly brown) with a black top. I think is was a special edition for Foto Brenner (who sold them new out of stock until today)?

It seems to me that some of the red ones are factory made and some are off-site modifications. There are differences in the covering between the two, however I don't have examples to illustrate.

Bill,

it's this one:

And and it's 70-year anniversary version... I know I've seen some genuine red as you're saying that is why I started doubting the "fakeness" of this one that I have

Thanks,
Vlad.

I came up with grim name for Red Fed5 "Death of the Communism".
Everyone has to have red-and-black ribbon on funerals of Party officials.
