      Thanks for help,still don't know what model it is Makina 1 or 2

      This is specifically a Makina I dating from 1920 to about 1933. It shoots 6.5 x 9 cm sheet film. The lens is correct for the camera. Though I specialize in collecting pre-1900 wood cameras, as a former photographer I've always had a soft spot for Plaubel equipment.

      Apologies ... hit 'submit' too quickly while proofreading my original comments.

      I meant to say this is very likely a Makina I/II conversion because it has the coupled rangefinder and dial-set shutter. When the II was introduced in 1933 (or so), the factory offered customers a service to add a coupled rangefinder on the I. These conversion models are a bit more unusual to find. It also means your camera dates to about 1933.
