Default do i have a 3.5E or 3.5C Rolleiflex ?

because i am about to buy a lens cap and hood in the used market such
as ebay.com, i think i have carefully determind Bay-what mount i really
need. but i am not sure my camera is actually a 3.5E or 3.5C. i need
your help.

some info of the camera,

1, the serial number is 1748514
2, a f/3.5 plannar taking lens and a 2.8 heldosmat viewing lens
3, gets a uncoupled meter, film speed can be set by the meter ring.
4, the sutter ring can apperture ring can set to be coupled or
uncoupled by rotate a level on the apperture ring.
5, i am not sure whether the viewfinder hood is removable, but i can
remove it by take of the four screws acound the hood.
6, the distance scale is in feets only, not meets.


my question is

1, is it a 3.5C or 3.5E

This is the important information that will determine which lens cap that
you require. There was a very recent discussion about this on this Rollei
users' list:



Given the number of questions that you have about your camera, I recommend
that you join this list or at the very least search it for some concise
answers.

regards,

Neil

i hope you're right. but it seems the web page you refered don't list
3.5E at all, it might be possible that the serial number range it
listed for 3.5E actually covered 3.5C also. check this page:
http://home.worldonline.dk/rongsted/Rolleisn.htm, you will find,

Start End S/N Prochnow Parker Evans
....
1.740.000 1.787.999 Rolleiflex 3,5 C Rolleiflex 3.5 E Rolleiflex 3.5 E
(type 1)

but i dont understand what the 'Prochnow', 'Parker' and 'Evans' mean
respectively.

They are the sources (men's names) from which the author of the page
gathered his info. Note that two of the three agree that yours is 3.5E. If
you are in doubt, email Rollei...bet they'd know
