VOOMP II “Pioneer” SN 201, 1934 front profile

A very rare “Pioneer” camera with SN 201 made by GOMZ and designed by Muratov in 1933, and only very few of them survived. Featuring nickel VOOMP 3.5/50mm no.561 (a Tessar copy in 40mm thread mount).

In excellent condition, with all typical features like the unique style of knobs, special vulcanite etc., with rare original lens cap and unmarked leather case. One of the earliest and best-preserved examples.
