I have some like that in Hüttig, ICA and Zeiss Icon.
On the plate holder for ICA Ideal 9X12cm, it's written 726/6.
Attachment 47641


AND- some say slide in, and some say pop on.... back numerics "726/6" or "726/7"... Holy Crap! Here's additional pix just so I can MORE confused...

Seller listed this as an ICA Ideal Model C 9x12....

Welll... ok. Anyone else?

of course, I haven't received the camera yet either- so... I'm going to try to acquire a couple of backs and see what works... then be alerted to the sell off of the ones that don't work....
