Another 'Treasure' given to me by a Kind Gent -- a German Voigtlander 'BESSA 66' 120 rollfilm camera. He said he could not get the shutter to fire properly but I found out you had to have a FILM loaded and number set to 1 in the Red Window, then press silver lever and in the small black 'Hole' appears Number 1.then you can set shutter and take snaps! All is explained in the VIDEO I made which you can see here :

You got the "Deluxe" version with the film counter !
I have an simpler one, with the sports finder

I was surprised how well the bellows has held up.
It came with the swing style filter, but no case.
The lens is a triplet Voigtar (just like yours) and the Prontor is a very reliable shutter.
