Prochnow Vol 1 page 7-162; the photos match your camera perfectly.

Note the four corner screws on the front board (only seen on the 
prototype), and the right angle focus drive exposed inside (also only 
seen on the prototype...which is fortunate, since it looks like a bad 
idea to expose delicate parts where people can stick their fingers).

Furthermore, no serial number.

Congratulations on what is truly a remarkable find...now you just 
need to find a 9x9 and you'll be completely the envy of the RUG.

Please tell us it wasn't on eBay...
