Question about Photography
No, the number on the lense is only the lense serial number. Lenses are/were made by companies separate from the manufacturer of the camera. Generally, if you search for Rolleicord on Google you can find pretty good information but you may have to do some digging to find something that looks like your model. The best bet, is to go by the make/type of lense to narrow it down. Rolleicords were made from the 30's to present day, with various features and lense types, mostly Schneider Xenar's or Zeiss Planar's. You can buy a brand new Rolleicord 2.8G today, for around $3000us, so the look of the camera can really lie about it's age.
Search for things like Rolleicord (lense maker) (lense type) (lense f/number) (shutter type). Shutter type will be Compur MX, MXV, Synchro-Compur M, MX, MXV, etc. Possibly also Compur Rapid. Shutter speeds can also narrow it down, but I believe all Rolleicords were B-500 shutters.
