ANSCO No.4

Postby Davoyles » Wed Apr 21, 2021 7:57 pm

So I have an Ansco no. 4, but it looks very different than what I on the site page https://collectiblend.com/Cameras/Ansco/Ansco-No.4.html.
You can see the lens's backplate is different, the lens itself has a pressure switch and I have that beautiful red leather. Mine is also "missing" that nickel film set toggle button on the right-hand side and the viewfinder shade. (Probably broke or was removed a few decades ago).
Are these discrepancies different model versions, like "A" vs "B", or inconsistency due to lower/developing manufacturing standards present over a century ago? (If Ansco was a company to do that.)
Any answers, comments, tidbits are appreciated, thank you.
