Another interesting version of particular camera. Although the big majority of Fed-50 cameras come with black nameplate and gold-coloured markings, very few cameras can be found with totally white nameplate indeed (see camera #122212 opposite). Happened to see a variation with white nameplate and black markings (#386250, A.Zilbert coll.).

One more version of the particular camera. Totally black nameplate. No otherwise different.

Very interesting donative sample of particular camera. My camera #333405 has "IZVESTYE SNOWMAN" silscreened on the upper right side of the frontplate and the donative metal plaque on the rear door (see pictures below).
