Just a quick post to share with you what Yashica’s last TLR box design looked like. After a long run that lasted from 1953 to 1986, this was the end of the road for Yashica (thanks to new owners the Kyocera Corporation).
Here is the earliest box in my collection – from 1954
Kyocera purchased Yashica on a dark day in 1983. This box obviously is from very near the end of the run for the Mat 124G and puts it post-takeover. By serial number, I estimate that my 124G (SN224XXX) puts my camera at being made in 1985.
This is likely the last version of the instruction booklet for the 124G.
OK, enough Yashica trivia for one day! Thanks for sticking around! – Chris
BTW, I’ve listed a few more new items in my camera shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com – see you there!
