CG SN: 944620

May be temporary, but a forum for information on Graflex and Graphic serial numbers and dates.
Date your Graphic and be happy ;-)

CG SN: 944620

Post by wayazo » Fri Dec 24, 2010 11:10 am

Hi,
Brand new here and brand new owner of a Crown Graphic "Special" 4x5 View/Press Camera. I found the serial number stamped into a metal plate between the focus rails. It is 944620. The camera has the Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 1:4.7/135mm lens (SN: 642782), a Linhof grip, top rangefinder, and Graflok back. I intend to put this camera in use for landscape photography. I am interested in it's date of manufacture, where I can locate a manual for this specific camera, and also what accessories might still be available. Hope you help.

Thanks in advance,

Bill

Thanks for the reply. I'll be checking out the graflex site for accessory info. Also seems like no one in my area develops 4x5 color sheets or transparencies anymore. Found multiple film sources but looks like I'll have to find a mail order place for developing color.
