It has a detachable hinged back with exposure guide.

The camera has recently been cleaned with a new mirror fitted making focusing clear and bright. The film transportation is very smooth as is focusing.
Both lenses are in very good condition without any issues.
The aperture dial works smoothly and the shutter appears to be accurate at all speeds.
Film tested with excellent results.
There are some issues not affecting general performance but need to be pointed out.
The shutter release locking arm is not present.
It is missing a “foot” on the base though this doesn’t affect stability at all.
The small flip up magnification loop is also missing
and the self-timer does not appear to be working.
It has been a working camera and so shows cosmetic signs of use.
A good example of a usable vintage camera.
