Ihagee Neugold Tropical Plate Camera

Is this a Neugold or another Ihagee tropical model?

There isn't much written information on the Ihagee Neugold, or any of the Ihagee folding plate cameras. The Neugold was available in 6.5 x 9cm and 9 x 12cm sizes, and was sold during the late 1920's. Some examples have gold gilt standards, lens boards and even shutter faces. I don't know if other models of Ihagee plate cameras were available in tropical finish.
