This is my first Rolleiflex and I am very pleased with it. I have been looking for one, at a decent price, almost since the start of my collection.
This particular camera appears to be an early Franke & Heidecke Rolleiflex 622, circa 1932. The ground glass does not have a spirit level in the lower right corner, which indicates the camera was manufactured between 1932 and 1934. The shutter is a Compur with a maximum speed of 1/300 which also points to the same timeframe as does the leather covering on the focus knob instead of the later black paint.
Of interest is that this camera has was appear to be aftermarket flash sync posts.
As always, if I am incorrect in the idetification, please let me know.
