Graflex Serial Number Identification

Post by Museum of the Plains » Thu Apr 15, 2010 1:32 pm

Hello,
I am the Accessions Head for the Museum of the Plains. Recently we began an inventory of our Camera collection and I am having some trouble identifying the Model and years of production for a Graflex Camera. The Serial number is 902407 and the camera has "Graflex Optar" optics. I would appreciate any help that you can give me. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Linda Garrison

902407 should be a 4x5 Pacemaker Crown Graphic. This came from a production lot started on 12/01/1954. The lot goes from 901027 through 904026 and there's no way to tell when the camera was actually produced.
