The only commemorative Fed 1.
It was made in small numbers in 1954 to commemorate the union between Russia and Ukraine.
The body itself is from the Fed 1g.
There are three engravings on the top plate:
- The logo Fed,
- "Factory named after F.E. Dzerjinski",
- "1654-1954 together forever in Moscow" in red.
The serial number (as it seems, always around 465xxx-468xxx) is at the back of the top plate.
- The opinion of Albino Pegorari and Claudio Asquini is that approximately 1000 examples of this camera were made, with serial numbers ranging in the 465,000 - 470,000 range. Reference: "From Russia with a Click"
