The Silette is sometimes called "The Poor Man's Leica". There are many series of Agfa Silette.. some c/w interesting names such as Ambi Silette, Solina Silette (Lomolina.. u might want to grab this.. hehe), Silette Vario etc.. May check this site - Silette 
Ok this description below  is about mine.. 
model : Agfa Silette Pronto-SVS
year : 1953 (Germany)
lens : Agfa Apotar 1:3.5/45mm
* however the shutter needs to be serviced. 

Bought this cam last week at Memory Lane at RM35.OO. Try to bargain but maybe they saw me so teruja they insist on the price. And I am that teruja also to pay. It did not look as clean as these shots at 1st, we manage to clean the metal part with 'Autosol Metal Polish' (also made in Germany.. this is a coincidence ok), from the hardware store at RM10 s that add up the price. The leather bag and the camera part could be polished using the kiwi kasut. 

This is our best bargain the last 2 weeks while shopping at the Memory Lane. . RM28, in good condition, ready to be used, just the leather casing looks quite worn out. Problems fixed by polishing the surface with the black kiwi kasut. Saw a Polaroid camera afterwards, but sadly it cost RM90 which is unaffordable.. isk

model : Minolta x-700
year : 1981 (Japan)
lens : MD50mm 1:1.4
