    All Linhof boards for the lV and later have the light trap rear raised ring on the back of the board.
    All, except for 2 special order Z boards have the hole positioned so that the lens is centered on the film. This places the l
    Hole lower on the board.
    The 2 Z boards are meant for 240 and longer modern lenses whose rear cell diameter is too large to let the board fully mount onto the front standard due to the rear cell hitting the front standard when mounting.

    I am not aware of any Linhof or Linhof copy boards for the IV or later without the raised light trap.

    On lll boards there was a round groove on the back of the board that formed the light trap.

    Possibly anyone having a Linhof manufactured board without the raised ring has a lll board and not a modern one. All Linhof copy boards are the raised ring type and size.

    Addenum: Years ago bought a second "Linhof" board on-line that didn't have a raised ring on the backside. The board just never mounted on the camera as securely as my OEM Linhof board did. Then one time later took a very close look at the Linhof crest/coat-of-arms with an Agfa loupe... it was of poor quality and obviously a rip off. Ironically I had specifically bought that board from a dealer here in the states to assure myself that I was purchasing an OEM Linhof board... live and learn.
