    But those are the serial numbers of the lenses, are they not?
    Yes, but the Zeiss serial numbers can help identifying the camera model.

    serial number on taking lens:

    serial numbers 1,760,000 to 1,947,000 would make it a Cord 1a model 1 made March 1936 - May 1937
    serial numbers 1,944,911 to 2,183,000 would make it a Cord 1a model 2 made May 1937 - Jan 1938

    both were fitted with same lenses and shutter.

    Open the back of the camera and you'll find the factory serial number.

    Before anyone replies about the serial numbers, yes they do overlap making it anyones guess what the ones between 1,944,911 and 1,947,000 actually were.

    Rolleicord model 1, model 2 and model 3 have the same lenses and shutter, and the same advancing film system.

    Model 2 and 3 have the same waist level finder, with sport finder by pushing viewfinder flap inwards; model 1 requires a second mirror (for "sport finder" or rather focusing at eye-level), as seen on Rolleicord II manual.

    It may be model 2 or 3...

    I'm quite sure it's the second model. Sportsfinder and no serial number on the nameplate.

    The third model has a cast nameplate with the serial number, plus the sportsfinder. The first and second model has the etched nameplate. The first model has the F&H logo on the viewing hood and no sportsfinder.

    I am suffering info overload. I knew this was the place to get the answers I need. I don't have the camera with me right now but I can tell you there is a triangular mirror on the bottom side of the viewfinder hood. It has a lever on the side that moves it back and forth at an angle for use as a sports finder. The name plate is thin tin or aluminum with the logo screen printed on it and held in place by four small screws and it is stepped out from the camera face.
    I looked inside the film chamber with a light and magnifying lens and could find no serial number. The taking lens does have a serial number but the focusing lens does not. I don't recall if the F&H logo is on the hood but it is on the face plate.

    With this description and a Triotar f4,5/75 lens, it's probably a Rolleicord 1a model 1.
    But it's easier to identify with a serial number...

    Ok, I finally got home from work and if all the info is correct then the serial is on the taking lens, correct? That number is 1950637. The logo "is not" on the hood. Will this help to decipher what I have?
