PB0610. Seems to be the 1st productional version of the particular camera. Vesna nameplate in transparent plastic characters on white background. An accessory shoe on the top plate already. Black shutter's disk, white "T-22" (not "T-22M" as on PB0605). 8-digits serial number with date prefix ("62" stands for year 1962). Quite common to find nowadays.

PB0630. The regular version of black Vesna camera. Raised nameplate characters. 7-digits serial number with first digit for date prefix ("4" stands for year 1964). Less common to find since the particular camera opposite has rectangular lens chamber, as on Vesna-2 cameras, not  the round one, as on regular Vesna cameras (see picture below).

PK5455. Very interesting, but doubtful item with wrong late Lomo T-43 4/40 lens. Shutter speeds: 1/8s, 1/15s, 1/30s, 1/60s, 1/125s, 1/250s + B.

An exterior of the mentioned camera looks different from mass-market MMZ Vesna's.
