Futura S with a Evar 2.0 50mm

Hello all,

Just got what looks like a nice Futura S.
Speeds after 25th are off, butIm about to put a roll of film in and give it a go.
I tried to look up the manual, but it’s really just a small information booklet.
The question I have is, there are three sets of letters by the shoe. SW, C, and CN. Not sure what those are. Also, there is a small lever or switch on the top. Wondering if this for rewinding?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Derek

ok, wild guess but could those letters be used to indicate what type of film is loaded?
C= Colour (Slide)
CN= Colour Negative
SW= B&W (Schwarz Weiss)?

I have cleaned the blades, and now it's working great. Slow speeds also.
Here are a few images.
