    If not, it could be nr. 5, Autonat Model 2 from the early 1940s.
    HUH? I'm gonna take a stab at answering this, here goes.
    The finder is the standard blade type that slides down and back not into the center as on some I have seen.
    It does have a flip up magnifier in the hood and one in the back panel as if it should have the sport finder mirror(it does not), as well as the square hole just above it.
    The lid to the finder has the hinged center panel and it only folds in up to about a 45* angle, again, as if it should have the sport finder mirror.
    I have done my research and I believe that I have found it to be a 51' model

    That's the one i thought it would be if (!) it had DBP and DBGM on it, instead of DRP and DRGM. That's why i asked about that.
    After the war, the Reich was replaced with the Bund. So if it still has the "R" instead of a "B", it either is pre-war or another 'hybrid' made up out of bits coming off different cameras.

    I have no idea. But how does that explain the serial number on the same name plate as the DRP/DRGM? I talked to Harry Flennor in CA. about this and he said to disregard that and just go by the serial. I am rather upset at the seller, I bought it BECAUSE of it being pre-war. It is still a nice camera and I will probaly keep it and send it off to Harry to have it gone over. unless y'all have a better idea.

    That is the Rolleiflex 3,5 A, if it has the M/X switch next to the flash contact. (K4A was the internal name at the factory). The mirror in the viewing hood was probably broken or lost.

    "DRP" and "DRGM" was used at least intil October 1949 when the Bundespatentamt was formed. Bundesrepublik Deutschland was founded in may 1949.

    Here is a pic of two MX Rolleiflex's; they have the "R" instead of the "B", and were made between 1951 and 1954; an Automat X (K4/50, 1949-1951) also has the "R", but an MX-EVS (1954-1956) has the "B".

    Edit : these MX cameras are the earlier (1951), with serial number 121.... and 122.... ; a later MX, with number 126.... (~1952), and a 2,8C, with number 129.... (~1953), have the "B".

    Andy, Those are sweet... my leatherette looks no where as good as those, in fact I am going to have to replace it but first I am going to send it off to Harry Fleenor to have it gone through.
