It existed when I compiled the page, maybe it was deleted after.

Hello everybody from a new member!

My lenses are mostly CZJ - it's easy to find their production years from serial numbers.
But I have a couple of Meyers (particularly 1767662, 1949504), and I'm curious.
I searched but haven't found, is there a list of production dates of Meyer lenses?

Thank you!

It is all here, just search and you'll find... Wink

You offer me to buy a book to find numbers of two lenses? Shocked
Thank you anyway Smile
Fabrikationsbuch for CZJ is definitely what I will consider for future purchases )))

No, I offer you a source where to find that info!
