    Where did you find that serial number? It is not in the records. What size camera do you have?

    It's a 9x12cm. It is inside the cover. Just below "Linhof Munchen"

    Best post some pictures. It seems that you might not have a III but a Medezin or a II from the WWII period.

    Roughly $600 for the camera and Heliar. Not bad at all!
    One man's Mede is another man's Persian.

    Well, from the pictures it is not a III. The III was introduced after WWII and was manufactured from 1946 to 1957. The III has a rangefinder housing that is level with the body casting. Yours is below the bady casting and the lock knob above the rangefinder housing is on top of the body on a III.

    More telling are the initials on the top of the camera body. They are from the period before the war ended.

    D.R.P = "Deutsches Reichspatent" (German Reich Patent)
    D.R.G.M. "Deutsches Reichsgebrauchsmuster" (German Reich Registered Design)

    -> used from 1891 until 1945
