Antique Cameras produced another list worth looking at.
I receive quite some messages from Rolleiflex owners who write that they have a camera with wrong parts or more often that I am wrong. The numbers themselves are printed on insignificant parts that were mounted or glued on nearly finished cameras.In the camera industry it is common practise to allocate numbers blocks based on production plans.As a consequence a serial number cannot easily be linked to a specific production day.Please see the Books paragraph on the ‘Information for TLR Users’ page.Peter Rongsted did a lot of work linking the camera names used by Prochnow, Parker and Evans. The following charts are mainly based on Prochnow’s and Rongsted’s work.
