    Yes, I just added that one. I've stopped indicating knucklers on the list after 116,000 (or so) range, as I assume every lens after the earliest knuckler I have will also have them. It would be interesting to find an non-knuckler out of sequence and the earliest knuckler.

    Marco, I'd guess 13647 was produced sometime shortly after the turn of the century. (1904? maybe)

    Re: Cooke Portrait Lens Serial Numbers

    Serial number I think is 28861 but someone best check...

    Series II f4.5 407mm (~16")
    Agents Generaux pour la Republique Argentine
    Rossi & Lavarallo
    Buenos Airies

    Looks like engraving in Spanish for the softness adjustment.

    UK/Europe ebay item number 264058589496

    Quite a price eh? (I have no association with the item, nor will I have ).

    Thanks. I didn't have 12828 on my list and I noted the French engraving on 28851.

    French lettering to the softness adjustment.
