  1. Re: C.C. Harrison, and Rapid Rectilinear, and... Unknown Lenses?

    December 1852 article mentioning guarding against fraudulent CC Harrison lenses.
  2. Re: C.C. Harrison, and Rapid Rectilinear, and... Unknown Lenses?

    That Harrison appears to be a fake. In that serial range, the serial number was stamped, not hand engraved. Also the entire engraving is off to known Harrison lenses. Sorry for the bad news.

    Re: Want Lens Suggestion late 19th C.

    A classic lens, that is pretty inexpensive, is the Darlot Wide Angle Hemispherical View Lens. This one has the three levers to be used as stops for the lens.

    The Hyatt Special Portrait Lens was a Dallmeyer copy, as was the Wollensak Royal portrait, Vitax, Ilex Acme Portrait (Vitax copy), Bausch & Lomb Portrait Series A and Series C, (not sure about Unar)....

  40. Re: Ilex Lens Serial Number and Manufacture Date Info?

    I believe the series S came to market in 1945. Given its not coated, I would say its probably 45-46 because these started to be sold coated in 47+48
