So I have an Ansco no. 4, but it looks very different than what I on the site page
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.

Ignore the Ansco No4 listing, I'll rework it.

It's this one I think ... -No.4.html
It's what later became known as Folding Pocket

If you'll take a photo on a white-ish background from the front-side angle, I'll gladly post it to that page.
