This is a Retina IIa, produced from around 1951-1954, it was sold with an original price of $169, which is over $1450 in 2011 dollars! In other words, this was not a cheap camera for the masses. Thanks to a badly spelled ebay listing, I got this practically mint condition camera for less than $30. I now have several Retinas, but the IIa is my favorite.
