Nikon F Photomic Finder/Meter Casting Numbers
The holes for the four screws holding the top-cover of the early Photomic finders were drilled individually on every item and the top cover was perfectly matching the casting. So the castings and the top cover are bearing the very same etched number.
On early Photomic Finders you find a number on the top of the casting under the cover. It is etched with a sharp instrument.
Photomic #880795 has number «1199» on the casting.
The very same number is also etched on the top cover under the leatherette.
Also you find there another number, refering to the last four digits of the serial number of the finder.
Photomic #880795 has number «1199» and «13-0795» on the top cover.
Photomic #880758 has number «1331» on the casting.
Photomic #880758 has number «1331» and «17-0758» on the top cover.
