Interesting. According to Schneider (see http://www.schneiderkreuznach.com/service/serie.htm ), the lens was made in 1928.

The "Not the Serial number book...But" post in Serial Number Savy forum lists 162053 as 1928 and 167748 as late 1929 or 1930 indicating that your camera was probably built in 1928 or 1929.
