For a start, if it has interchangable bellows, it's a Classic. If not, then it's probably the modified Wista Fred sold for many years.
If a Classic, then look at the plate on the front. The first ones had both Picker's and Wisner's names on it, I believe. After that, it gets a little fuzzy.
If you want to know for sure, contact Richard Ritter. He assembled them for Fred for many years, and still works on them now.
