The Kodak Retina II, Typ 014 Special Production  

This Kodak Retina II is a special production of the Typ 014 Retina. It is fitted with a 50mm f2.0 Schneider Kreuznach Retina-Xenon lens in a Compur-Rapid Shutter. This Typ 014 Retina II No. 270230 was manufactured in November of 1949 and was imported in the USA by Eastman Kodak Co. It is the only EKC import without an "EK" prefix on the body serial number and has a lens and shutter similar but not identical to that seen on a Typ 011. It is a Typ 014 with a flat front shutter and no flash post or synchronization. In all of the pre-1950 Retinas, condition is critical and this one is a lovely example.
