    Ok, I finally received ONE of the Rollei"s that I purchased and now I need to locate the serial number on the camera. Does anyone have any idea where I can find the serial number?

    I have a 'cord and there is nothing at the top of the name plate except "D.R.P." and "D.R.G.M.". I would think that the serial number would be on the main body to in case of parts swapping that would remove it.

    I don't know about Rolleicords, but on Rolleiflexes (the TLR sort) the number is only on top of the name plate.

    I'm waiting with baited breath for my 'flex to get here so that I can ID it and start playing with it. Q.G. I appreciate your help. I have never used a Rollei' and I can not wait for the 'Flex to get here but for now I am getting to know the 'Cord. I have some parts coming for it but I still need to ID what series 'Cord it is. Any help would be appreciated. The 'Cord has a Carl Zeiss Jena Triotar 1:4.5 f=7.5cm taking lens and the focus lens is a Heidoscop-Anastigmat f=7.5. It has settings for T,B 1-300 and f-stop from 4.5-32 with a Compur shutter. The waist level finder has a sports finder and there is a red lens on the bottom for frame count. The film advance has a button in the center that must be depressed before the film will advance.

    It's a prewar Rolleicord, that's pretty sure (DRP instead of DBP, Zeiss Jena Triotar instead of Schneider lens).

    Not that i'm an expert.
    But i know a page made by one
    Scroll down this page and see which fits your Rolleicord best.

    And there's one on the viewing lens too.

    But those are the serial numbers of the lenses, are they not?

    Rolleicord Ia, second type, made between May 1937 and January 1938.

    You only use the red window to wind the film to the first frame. After that you use the mechanical counter.

    Here's a manual. It's for the Rolleicord II, but they are much alike:
