Yes, your camera is near the end of the first run of 2.8 F cameras. Yours is probably '63/ '64. If it has the plate glass option, there will be a tiny pin next to the right side of the film gate (photographer's right). Also there will be a half circle 'button' near the film sensor rollers that when pressed in, allows the flat glass to slip into the film gate.

What is the serial number of your camera?


And, I think I just answered my own question. That serial number puts it near the end of the first run of 2.8F's, so that should make it a K7F, I believe. According to the lists on that site, cameras near the end of that first production run also had the flat glass provision. How is that identified?
