Re: New member with A GC camera

Thanks for your consideration. This effort is not as much about learning more about your Mitchell as it is about keeping these precision clockwork survivors preserved and acknowledged. Registration gives you at least one factual document that validates the province of a camera other than hearsay whi...

Mk2/a (100- 268) = 168 (Serial numbers not continuous)
System 35 (101-382) = 281 ( “ )

Total = 502
