Back in the year 1953 the SWEDISH MILITARY DEFENSE bought 10 pieces
of VOIGTLÄNDER BESSA 11 with lens SKOPAR 3,5/105 mm.

These cameras were engraved ,from the manufacture, with three crowns
and numbered 1-10 and the year -53.

It comes with a leather bag , with three crowns stamp in the front.

LP-FOTO sold, in the year 2001, auktion nr 13,
such a camera, engraved 10/53 and three crowns.

The price then, was 7,200 swedish kronor,
with commission about 8,600 swe. kronor

norden, this is interesting. I knew about Leica and Hasselblad "3 crowns" cameras, but never heard about Bessa II. Thanks for the info!
