There were actually two Contina ll models - just to confuse you! This folder (524/24) and a rigid body type was introduced in 1956 ,the 527/24, with a light meter covered in bubbled glass. The lla (often confused with it) had a little metal flap over the cell.
I'd love one of the 524/24's but I cant have everything and I am collecting only models sold in 1957. And sticking rigidly to my list.
