Exakta IIa - Version 1.1 (Rare - modified faceplate - VX IIa engraved with border)

Hummel #025 (Exporte)

Essentially a Varex IIa, Version 1, with a modified front plate. I elected to call this version, Version 1.1. The original Varex IIa engraving was ground, hammered out and refilled amd then re-engraved with only the VX IIa letters in a box . This is one of the versions that are easily counterfeited. Unless you are experienced with these versions, let the buyer beware.

In Gary Cullen's Book, Exakta Obscurities, this camera is closest to a Version 9 but is slightly different. I'll call it a Version 9A
