unusual Linhof Technika III?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I have a Linhof Technika III 4x5 which I believe is a bit unusual. According to the research I have done it is a late model III (angled front door, focus wheels on both sides of the bed, serial number 53xxx.) However it is a dark red in color. That is the leather and the metal parts of the camera are red instead of the traditional black. Because of the quality of the work on the leather and the metal, it appears to have been done at the factory and not by an individual as a modification.

Any information or comments would be greatly appreciated

Not that this helps but.....

I have seen two photographs of two different photographers, an Australian and an American, from Maryland - both with Red Linhofs, no idea what vintage, model or size though, I'm very ignorant on Linhof- lore. The American was featured in "Annapolis" or "Baltimore" magazine sometime in the early 90's and I can't remember where I saw the Aussie, possibly in a book on Australian Akubra hats...
