Hey, You have my old camera
I didn't have it too long, swapped it for another digital camera, but I regret not keeping it.
I wondered at the time about the authenticity of it being an original black version back then. I'm pretty sure that it is, but not necessarily because it's brass underneath. Apart from many aspects being the correct colour (black or silver), all the ones I'm pretty sure were real had "xxx451" serials. Like someone else pointed out here, it's just that plate on the rewind lever that is the wrong colour. The shop I bought this from had two black Canon P's. They both seemed to be real, but the other one was worn through to silver rather than brass.
I recently bought a custom repaint and yesterday I got a nice little black Jupiter lens to go with it. I will put my first roll of film through it soon...
