This camera is a Graflex RB(rotating back) Series B SLR camera, that was also often used as a press camera in the beginning of the 20th century and is still very common and easily obtainable. I've managed to date this camera with the help of the serial number to somewhere mid 1930's.
This camera is a very good camera to use in my opinion, although for fast action photography it isn't the best choice, because you can't see your surroundings when looking into the viewfinder. You should also visit for lots of information on the great presscameras made by graflex.
