    Linhof Serial Numbers

    Thanks, Bob. That's a little later than I thought. Did Tech V 4x5" and Master Tech production overlap for a few years?

    4321 is about 1960.

    There have been many changes in the Master not the least of which is the Master technika 2000 with built-in focusing for 35mm and longer lenses instead of a built-in rangefinder.

    As for the Master Technika Classic model knobs have changed, placement of the strap lugs is different, the way the Universal Back attaches to the camera is different, the company that made the cable release that mounted to the drop bed was liquidated so the holes the release mounted to are no longer there.

    Things have changed internally also as had the processes used to make the castings and work the castings. Also there are differences in internal parts as the original Master technika was introduced in 1976 so over that long a time span many changes take place.

    Which is best? The current ones of course.
