To post pictures on this site first upload them to an image hosting site then link to them or embed them using that sites code(s).

The serial number of your camera is ink stamped on the under side of the camera top. You will possibly need a flashlight to see it.
What is the serial number?

Your camera is in the middle of a listing for 75 cameras entered in early January 1931 with the next listing for 5x7 Speeds in August 1933.

God luck finding the parts you need. This catalog from 1932 shows #33 and #34 Kodak Anastigmat for the 5x7 Speed.

This Eastman catalog from 1931-1932 shows these lens were available in barrel or Compound shutter.

The focal plane shutter is unchanged for the Anniversary Speed.
The service instructions for the Anniversary Speed are valid for the Pre Anniversary.
