(1963-1968)
Camera # 2065583. f3.5 Xenar lens # 8925004.
This is the most rare of the 4 X 4 cameras. It had a small production run and is much sought after by collectors.
Although it appears the same outside as the Gray Baby, it is quite different mechanically. This one has black coarse grained leather.
Although the manufacturer listed this camera with either the Tessar or Xenar lens, no cameras with a Tessar lens have been reported.
If you know of one, please report it to this site.
Including: Tropical case, leather case, Lens hood and meter  known as the Rolleilux Combination.

They are just 11 X 7 X 6.5 cm with focusing hood down. And the Grey Baby is just 1 cm taller.
