Default Old Carl Zeiss help

I have an old Carl Zeiss camera my husband found. I'm trying to figure out how to work it, what it is worth, etc. It is a Biogon 38mm 1:4,5. Lens serial Nr3570666, body serial TCW6591, film holder serial CU40159. Super Wide C. It's in pretty good shape. It even still has film in it. The lens is the chrome one, not black. I have searched on Google and have found some newer looking models but nothing that will tell me anything about.

Anyone have any ideas or any wherei can look?

Thanks!

Can you post a photo of it?

You have a Zeiss lens on a Hasselblad camera. Look up Hasselblad for more specifics, or maybe some user of old MF cameras can give you more info.

Found an example here

Yes, that's a Carl Zeiss Biogon on a Hasselblad Superwide Camera SWC camera body.

Here's a link to the datasheet for the lens:

Here's another:

According to the Hasselblad Historical website, it was made in 1963.

The only manual for the Hasselblad Super Wide I could find is for the 905swc, which is similar to yours:
