RE: Serial Numbers

Hi! Just discovered this forum as a link from Graflex.org. What a great idea. My question is: I've got about 18 cameras by F&S Mfg. Co., F&S Div. of EKCo,. F-G Corp., and Graflex Inc., ranging from S.N. 8039 to S.N. 502633. I'd like to add them to your list. How can I do this? Thanks. Happy New Year! :D

A link from graflex.org? :o :shock:

I don't know if the original creator of the list can be contacted? It would be nice if they posted here...

You can simply post your camera/serial numbers right here in the forum. That's what it's for. And for asking for dating info...

I know someone was going to do a new and fairly complete serial number list but I'm not sure how that's going. I've had some serious computer troubles over here and lost almost all of my e-mails. I''ll have to get in touch with him on that...

Isn't it ironic, just when extinction is practically guaranteed, photography hits its prime as a fine art? Support non-digital photography, before it's too late!
