   Series 6 is a _size_ of filter. I think the series sizes
were originated by Kodak. I don't know when this system
originated but it was certainly in general use by the
  I have somewhere data on the dimensions of series size
filters. They were/are made in both threaded and
non-threaded type. Most were non-threaded types meant for
use in push-on adaptors, which BTW, will also take the
threaded variety.
  The adaptor being asked about is one allowing push-on
filters to be used on the Rollei bayonet mounting system.
This allows the use of any filter of the right size on the
camera with only a single adaptor. I have one for Bay-I (is
it? for Automats) cameras.
  I don't think Rollei ever offered such an adaptor but some
filter manufacturers did.
