Hi Ruben,
1953 - 655001 - 673000

As to loading the film, there was a Leica accessory, a template for 
cutting the leader - ABLON.

What I do is after removing the base. Put the film end in the take up 
spool and pull out enough film , then take off the lens, set the shutter 
to B so that it stays open and fiddle the film onto the sprockets
through the "picture taking hole" (I'm getting too German, I can't for 
the life of me think what it's called.)
When you get used to this method it takes about a minute to put a new 
film in.
