I would like to know the model of my Speed Graphic and when it was manufactured. Serial# 188374. The first number 8 was scratched off a little, but I do think its 188374. If not, it could be 168374, 138374, or 158374. It has a Kalart(serial# F19402) Synchronized Range Finder on one side, and a handle on the other, a spring back, and 2 other viewfinders on top. I believe the shutter table was originally on the side of the range finder, but it's on top now and it says:

curtain aperture
tension no. 1/8 3/8 3/4 1-1/2
1 350 110 40 10
2 440 135 50 15
3 550 160 65 20
4 680 195 75 25
5 825 235 80 30
6 1000 295 90 35

The Folmer Graflex Corporation
Rochester, NY, USA,

and there's a very small number in the bottom left corner of that plate - #2061.
What do that particular number mean?

I don't have an original lens for the camera, but I do have a 7-1/2in., f/3.5, Taylor-Hobson Cooke anastigmat lens (series II.A.-serial# 195073) that I would also like
any info. on, if possible. Thanx,

Dreddy

Hello Dreddy......
No need to double-post your messages here as you have done in this case. The content of your query rightly belongs under "SPEED GRAPHIC HELP" and will likely be seen more (and have more replies) there in that other forum.

I put this in the wrong place to begin with. Needs to be deleted. I copied it over to speed graphic help.
