    Very very roughly, I'd guess a 2.8C. They have serial numbers on the top plate which allow you to identify it when you receive it (I'm assuming it isn't in front of you).

    Irregardless of the exact model, and judging from your photo, you got a super buy!

    I am so jealous of people who find these incredible bargains.

    Use the camera well!
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I though so too. I asked here if everything is working and she said yes. I asked too if it had a lens cover and it comes with too. So I got T and this guy. I'm good.

    If you can post the serial number I'll tell you what it is.

    I'll put in a second vote for the 2.8C - I think the C was the only one that had the black plastic locks for the shutter and the pc socket, which this appears to have. As others have said, post the serial # and a definitive answer can be provided.

    Along with the black plastic locks, the C had small silver 'buttons' around the shutter and aperture dials that had to be depressed to move either one. I can see them in the photo.

    To the OP, the 2.8C was the last Rolleiflex model with a 10-bladed aperture. The D and later had five blades.

    $75? That's a gift, not a purchase. Enjoy.
