    Help identifying lens board (C-1?)

    I recently picked up a lens on a cast aluminum lens board that was badly surface corroded, but otherwise perfectly good. I'm leaning towards it being from a Calumet C-1. Can anyone confirm this? Also, on some sites these are referred to as C-1 / Deardorff lens boards - are they interchangeable?
    The third photo shows markings on the interior side - C1-10-8C.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Sure looks like a C-1 board to me. Earlier (magnesium) ones were painted green, later (aluminum) ones were black. In the interests of accuracy, I don't know if the green lens boards are magnesium or not- the cameras are.

    As stamped on it, it is a C-1.
