I recently acquired a lovely R.B. Tele Graflex, 3 x 4 format size ("Folmer & Schwing Division, Eastman Kodak Co." on the shutter speed plate).

I have not yet been able to locate a serial number. Can someone tell me where it is found on that machine?

Thanks.

The very early Graflexes have the serial number embossed into the lip of the viewfinder opening opposite the lid hinge.
The newer ones have the number ink stamped on the under side of the view hood lid. Disconnect the view hood to see the number clearly. The number will be 5 or 6 digits.
Magnifing glass and varing the angle of the viewing light help to see the number.

Greetings,

Yes, I found it on the underside of the lid covering the finder hood, stamped into the wood. I had to remove the hood to expose it.

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Doug
