This camera is a quite rare one. It is a copy of Zeiss Ikonta. Most of the Moskva-1 were covered with black leather, and small quantities - with brown leatherette. The Moskva-1 displays old KMZ logo - a tombstone type.[1] You can see it in the lens, shutter, and inside the back door. First batches of Moskva-1 were made with Zeiss parts and tools.
