    May be wrong but it looks like a Nikon mount.

    Most likely Leicaflex mount see the second picture with the locking pin. Also Exacta never had internal stop down control which can be done with a dual cable release or the manual lever on thse bellows. The makers name is also a big clue :D

    I have some Leitz catalogues somehere that may contain these bellows of more likely in "The Leica Way" book.

    Have a look at where it folds and corners they are the most common places for light leaks(based on personal experience with a old Pentax k1000 compabale unit)

    Leitz Focusing Bellows For R Mount Cameras 16860, that's definite :D

    The scale rotates for different FL lenses, a nice set of bellows if you have a Leica SLR.

    Yes, it's the Leica Focusing Bellows R.

    I missed the OP's post giving the mfr's name and that lever on the mount fooled me.

    I have a set of Exacta bellows but that lever puzzled me as it's on the wrong end.
