Hi,

Sorry if this has been covered before...I couldn't find it.

Can someone please tell me where the serial number is on a top handle 4x5 speed graphic?

The only number I have found is when I remove the back of the camera, there is one stamped in the wood of the camera and the back.

Any help is much appreciated.

Cheers

He has a nice article on Top Handled Speed Graphics

https://journal.graflex.org/journal-2019-02.pdf

which in several places discusses serial numbers ect. but does not give the location in the article.

With the bed open, front standard in the body, turn the camera upside down and look at the bottom of the camera top on the right side of the camera with it in this position.
I have an assumed to be 1928 pre anniversary with a reused serial number. It is on the bottom of the camera top and inside the back also.
