    Christopher,
    That sounds like my older one. The SN on mine is on the focusing track (I think). I’ll take some snaps of it tonight.

    Ah. Maybe a snap or two from your camera would help me find what I'm looking for. I'll take a pair of reading glasses and inspect the focusing rails again.

    Here are a few pics of my old 5x7. Christopher, yours may be older if it doesn't have an articulated back.

    Very interesting. There are certain similarities. The body and drop bed, as well as the color of the scales. You're right about the articulated back. Mine is so much simpler than your's. The logo is on a small plate at the front edge of the top focusing rail. Mine doesn't have the large stamped logo like your's. Hmmm... I still can't see a serial number. Maybe I need better light and my reading glasses afterall...

    What year did you say your's was made? And what model is it?

    Bob Salomon indicated it did not show up on his records which are from 1946 onward. Maybe the photos will help him identify it.

    Does yours take regular film holders?

    Bob,

    Sorry to bother you over the Holidays. But if you're following this, how about #471x?

    Kirk Keyes pointed out the obvious (and to which several others on this thread have also pointed to). He found the serial number for me.

    Chris,

    That would be a III from 1948 or so.
