Rangefinder & lens set !?

Found this set at a local auction site...
Kodak, Rangefinder labelled 2,8/50.
Lenses labelled N1/32, NII/32 & NIII/32


What type of camera does this belong to?
Any idea of the value ?

Interested to understand what is -- any ideas??

Close-up set for Retina with f/2.8 lens with (I think) 32mm filter thread. Three close-up lenses and a close-up range/viewfinder.

Cheers,

R.

OK... Thanks! I have a Retina Ia but the filter thread is much smaller on that one... anyone with suggestions on what Retina to look for to be able to use these closeup lenses !?

This will work with most of the Retina's with 50mm F2.0 or F2.8 Xenon Lenses.

That would be Ib, IB, IIc/C, IIIc/C.
I used it on a IB with very good results.
They made different sets for 45 mm lnese and 50 mm lenses the difference was the number of close up lenses. For the one category they issued lens I and II was enough you had to use both for the closest distance wheeras for The other they added a lens III....just forgot which combination was for which lens.

It will be a lot of fun to really slow down and use the close-up attachments. Neighborrs sometimes wonder why I sit in the same place in our garden for an hour or two. Enjoy it.

I use mine on my Retina II and the Retina IIa. 32mm filter thread.
