    Post your question on graflex.org. The numbers on Graphics and Graflexes allow approximate manufacture dating.

    Steve- this is no Graflex. It's a massive portrait camera that takes an 8" lensboard. They don't have serial #s. I thought I had a picture of mine in my gallery, but I seem to be mistaken.

    not sure about the serial numbers but this catalog from 1908 should show you what they look like

    as for your stand's worth ...

    not sure, but if it is a semi - centennial stand,
    it was the rolls royce of camera stands ( and probably still is ! )
    when it was new ( 1890 ) it was shipped in a 90lb box and cost $25

    But it was made by the Century Bike company which turned into the Graflex et al company. Hence, some of the people at graflex.org are very knowledgeable about the Century cameras and their history.
