I think you misunderstand my use of the term special order, TT&H Cooke didn't offer that focal length as a standard catalogue item so it would have been a special order of lenses made specifically for Graflex.

That Graflex RB C camera itself is quite heavy at 7╝lbs, it's 4lbs heavier than my Dallmeyer Press (a rebadged Ensign) which is a similar era quarter plate SLR.
