Hi everyone - as part of an estate, I acquired a Voigtlander Bessa camera. The instruction booklet refers to "Voigtlander Bessa with optical finder". There is a metal plate with a "depth of focus table". I expect the camera is from the 1930s, based on the all leather body and images I have seen.
My question is how can I figure out exactly which Bessa camera this is? (year, model, value)
My guess would be you have the Bessa 46 otherwise known as the "Baby Bessa" made in 1939. This camera has a optical finder built-into the top housing. There were a couple of different lens/shutter combinations offered and the camera uses type 120 roll-film.
