    Here's the link to the pdf file of the 1901 Yearbook: https://ia601401.us.archive.org/29/i...JuAAAAMAAJ.pdf

    Yes, it's very interesting to see. By looking at it, there must have been a piece of barrel added to the original, since by looking at my lens, it only has the same thread as on the front, and is not that deep. My lens group fits just fine on the front as on the back.

    I measured my flange mounting thread, and it's almost 64mm and seems to be a 1.0mm thread, althoug I couldn't know the tolerances specified in that particular period. Maybe I can get a shop to build one for me, or look out for a flange with those characteristics, but of course not every seller documents everything to the full specs.

    Dan - I am amazed! The only explanation I can come up with is that Suter must have gone into some kind of Hibernation for about 5 years - or manufacture on a very small scale for that period. Also surprising is the mention of the A Aplanat this early, when the only engraved A aplanats have higher serial numbers? I'll get round to adding this data in a sensible way in the table I have already started.
