Dating my Dorff? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I recently acquired a Deardorff 8 x 10. I know it is one of the later ones, round bottom plate, front swings, etc. McKeon's indicates numbers begin in the 1950's and run from there to the end of production, but his list is not specific. Does anyone have a listing that would help me pinpoint the year of manufacture? The serial number on the front standard is #5451. Thanks, Rob
