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

Hi,

The serial number of the camera is 391569.

The seller on the big auction site described it as only manufactured in 1925/26, but I think not.

The Ektar lens was manufactured in 1947, and there appears to be a 1/47 printing date in the instruction manual.

Oh, and it has a built-in plug for flash synch.

Thanks!

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.
