I just acquired an old Hasselblad 1600F from 1950 and wanted to see if anyone knows how to date the month/day of manufacture. I know the camera has been made in 1950 (has serial number starting with CS) and Hasselblad produced about 300 cameras of this kind which were supposed to be destroyed due to a bad shutter. Out of 300 there were destroyed something like 130. I'd be curious if the one I have escaped that 'execution', which would make it quite rare.
Thanks in advance.
