My dad had this for a long time. He said he didn't use it much because 5 x 7 is a real pain to find. I remember him saying it was a "Universal" but constructed by Linhof or Deardorf. It appears to be constructed of Cherry. There is a number on the focusing screen frame and the number 32 stamped a few other places. Nothing on the lens - it looks very clear. The bulb will still move the shutter. Can someone give me an idea as to who made it and under what circumstances? I know my dad attended photo recon school in Colorado Springs but they used 8 x 10s. The lack of a brand name got me thinking about a government contract.
