Location of serial number on 503cw


New Member
I am a newbie who has been given a Hassie 503cw. Can anyone tell me where i can find the serial number on the body of my camera so i can check its age. Thankyou in anticipation.
PS. I bet this makes me look pretty dumb!
You need to remove the film magazine from the body to be able to see the serial number on the back of the body. The number is at the bottom of the back below the lower auxilliary shutter curtain. Once you have the magazine off, it'll be obvious.

Welcome to the club. If you have been given the manual with the camera, it's quite worth reading.
Some specifics can barely be figured out on the assumption you can work a 35mm. Manuals are available from the web.
