The #2,873,450 does not appear in the Peter Rongstedt SN list
accordingr Evans, Parker and Prochnow for any model. The same way, the sn
for the 3.5 F 1980 special order I mentioned previously does not appear for
any model; I think it means they are units made out of the regular
production if they are original cameras. Sometimes Rollei used sn out of
the regular production sn for spare parts with original sn and sometimes
they did not use sn for these spare parts... ;-) ;-) ;-). When FFS replaced
my 3,5F selenium cell, the spare part did not have a sn and they sent me
the original with the sn. It's difficult to give a final opinion after
several decades and without to see the camera. If you need to replace the
Rolleicord Vb white Face name plate, I think it needs some number for
aesthetic reasons and Rollei wouldn't use a number from the regular

I have the Rollei Report II second and third
edition and there are no changes for the sn you mentioned talking about the
Rolleicord. I' ll see the Peter Rongsted's list afterward but I don't think
it could be different. Anyway, I commented on 2005 about a Rolleiflex 3,5F
"special order" Rollei manufactured in 1980 according Manfred Schmidt, the
Rollei cameras seller, I wrote in part, pasting from Manfred Schmidt site:
Rollei Rolleiflex 3.5 F - Type 3, #5205297, Xenotar,
lightmeter, one of the "Special Order" cameras made in
1980, new price was $1700, a very interesting part is
one filmholder pin is made of plastic like on Arum.."
It could be some special order Rolleicord made for a Phillips equipment
or for some other purpose after the ending of the camera regular
production, but I don't know. Rollei had a lot of parts for the F, the T
and the 'cord on the seventies due to the TLR low sales, they were the
reason for the Aurum and the 1987 T for the German Army and/or Police.

I received a question from someone who owns a Rolleicord with serial
number 2,873,450. The highest number for a Cord that I know of is 2,677,534
for a Vb.
Carlos, I remember you own the second edition of Claus Prochnow's books.
Is that 2,873... number mentioned for a Rolleicord. I own the first edition
and it is not listed there.
Thanks and best regards,
Ferdi Stutterheim. ---
