According to Evans it is a 'Cord IV made between '53 and '54. Should have M
and X synch. It also should have a 1/500th top speed which will take a bit
of resistance to overcome when engaging... just make sure the shutter's not
cocked when going for it...

I love my 'Cord III... nice round iris which I think your 'Cord has as well!
