Camera 01972 with Georz Syntor lens

This camera 01972 is an odd one out. It has a Georz Syntor lens in a late Autographic body, The lazy tong mechanism is however of the first type. The body number is unusual in that this the first that I have found prefixed with the figure 0. With the lazy tong type 1 and this low number it would indicate that it was a very early camera that has been refitted in a much later body. It would be interesting if any other early cameras came up wth this 0 prefix. Camera number 1146, see earlier does not have this prefix. (a mystery  camera?)
