Although the prototype of Kiev-4 was introduced in early 1951 (source: DVD Technik), the earliest version of particular camera came into the market in 1957. All type-1 cameras have an unique feature - the lightmeter has no  edges of rigidity! The earliest cameras came with 5 or 6 digits serials and double markings "IZGATOVLENO B CCCP/ MADE IN USSR" on the accessory shoe. The latest ones have single markings "SDELANO B CCCP" engraved.
