Kodak Retina Serial Numbers

This information appears courtesy of Retina camera specialist David L. Jentz

First Retina camera identified serial number series (1934 - 1937)

These serial numbers are not taken from the factory records, those records were dumped decades ago. These are numbers that have been compiled from cameras seen in the 'wild'.

Please note that the number on the lens is the lens serial number, not the camera serial number.

The serial number for the camera models listed on this page will be found on the inside of the camera back.

Don't look here for Retinette serial numbers, you won't find any!
