Post Dating a Crown Graphic 4x5
Crown Graphic 4x5, SN: 979500
It has the number "41" printed under the focusing rails, which does not correspond to the schema used for dating newer models.

The lens is a 135mm f/4.7 Optar, SN: 904257

The "book" has listing up to 8/19/1964 with serial numbers 975909-978408. It then says "see new book". There is no 'new book' as far as I know of...

The "not list" says:
978635 – 4x5 crown -- December 1964
980335 – crown -- guessed at 1965

which is probably as close as you can figure.

You could try on as some folks there know, but who knows?
