- - Evans writes "Collectors Guide to Rollei Cameras", page 201: "(Rollei 35
S) Serial Numbers, under takeup spool".

- - Prochnow writes "Rollei Mini Report 3", page 17: "(Rollei 35 S)
Kameranummer: Auf der R=FCckseite (=3D camera number: on the back)".

My Rollei 35 S (black) has the serial number (6,517,xxx) on the back of the
top cover and it's in the range 6,500,000 to 6,799,999. :)
