Ihagee "Kine Exakta-I". Lend-lease. Type-1.2.3 (1945) + Original documents + Retro flash
Rangefinder camera - Very Good (used & in working state with minor signs of use)

Functionality: excellent, fully working condition - lens and viewfinder lenses are clean, viewfinder visibility is good - no distortion, focusing and aperture work smooth and pleasant. The shutter fulfills the entire range of shutter speeds perfectly. Self-timer is working.

The flash is fully functional! Of course, the battery charge is already weak, enough for 3-7 times of use.

As you can see the purchase certificate with the surname of the buyer is attached to the camera. Due to the fact that the KGB, the Ministry of State Security, Counterintelligence and the Special Services during the war and for a long time after it tightly controlled the presence of radio receivers and cameras among the population of the country, the illegal use of this technology threatened with imprisonment from five to 10 years. The purchase of this equipment was strictly controlled and a simple person from the street could not afford to buy such equipment, therefore, with the agreement of the KGB, this certificate was issued, which was the protection of this person from serious troubles. Permission was mainly issued to either representatives of the KGB and the special services or official journalists, official sources of propaganda. Without a doubt, the person who bought this camera is not a simple profession. It remains a mystery how this camera came to the USSR, since the Ihagi plant was outside the zone of Soviet occupation. Most likely, this is either a trophy technique or a limited series was still supplied under Lend-Lease from the capitalist occupation zone.
