Looks the same, is tail 3-D moulded or flat. Other views would help.

The other piggy is a Hasselblad promotional one  :huh: I got one in the Zoo and def a pig  ;)

Looks like the same camera in Andy McConnells 20th Century Glass (ISBN 13 978 1 845330 99 6), Page 43. 

Described as: Moulded Glass Camera, Swedish 1975.  Designed by Christof Sjögson, for Lindshammer, Sweden c.1975.

The 3d tail makes it an early model.

Two photographs showing the different tails. The first is the standard moulded tail, and the second the flattened and simplified tail used for a period circa late 1960s / early 1970s.

There's a lot of eBay nonsense about 'rare early models' because of the moulded tail, but actually the flattened tailed ones are less common, having had a much shorter production span. But neither are terribly rare, because they're mass-produced pressed glass.
