Re: Date for Graflex Series B RB 2 1/4 x 3 1/4

"Date for Graflex Series B RB 2 1/4 x 3 1/4
The serial number of the camera is 391569."

391569 is in a series (390640-391639) dated 05/13/1946 as 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 RB Ser. B Graflex.

When it was actually manufactured can only be guessed at.

Re: Serial number 19?166

That makes for a heck of a date spread! So, number 190069 starts on 12/19/1935. Number 197083 through 197832 starts on 02/22/1937 Those are for 4x5 Speeds. Possible closer dates: 194768 through 195861 on 11/02/1936 195891 through 196380 on 01/04/1937 197083 through 197832 on 02/22/1937 198638 throug...

Re: Date for a Speed Graphic Serial number 845474

Sorry for the long delay...


845474 is from a batch dated 2/10/1950, from 845218 through 848218.

When it was actually made is anyone's guess but it is nearer the start of the numbers so 1950 would be a good guess.

Re: Inheritance

I found a number 37377 stamped on the inside of the camera body. Could that mean something? Yes, it would mean you have a camera that pre-dates Graflex :) Where the serial number is depends on what type of camera it is. Generally, they are on the inside of the box, usually somewhere at the top. I w...

Re: Inheritance

Hate to say it, but unless you've got some really weird piece of equipment there, B2191Z is not it's serial number... But, it would be very close to 821912. Unfortunately, there's no info at all in "the book" about serial numbers 820000-845217 All I can tell you from "the book" is that it could be a...

Re: CG45 #951770

Well, I'm stumped... "The Book" is extremely confusing in certain areas and this is one of them... It could be from late 1949 and that's my best guess. A lot numbered from 950,?00 through 963,042. There's scribbled notes about jumping and changing serial numbers on two pages. The next page has numbe...
