Hi Detlev, I have seen this camera as well and it also puzzled me. Did Julius have anything to say about it? I also seen the serial number that starts with "A" recently. Do you know what the deal is with that one?

Best regards,
Vlad

Hi Vlad,
the F21 T manual says: the camera has 5 digits serial number prefixed with a letter "T", which is entered into a passport.
The first two digits seem to be often the production year, but not in all cases.

I like how well-worn the -A camera is. That's a lot of use.

I have A700072! I've often wondered about it. But not as strange as the serial of the first camera above.

I suppose the old number was milled out and a new one was engraved

Really strange numbering.
My two seem to have normal numbers: N005756 and T921610

Never questioned mine, it has only 5 digits, as the manual suggests, but not 6 like Ulrich's...

5 digits is the common method

But the first two digits are not always the production year

From Russia:
Serial numbers of special equipment depended on the customer. The description was in the terms of reference.
The only thing I can say is that "БЛ" (BL) is the factory index of the drawings.
For example: BL3.821.031 is "mikrofotoapparat F21T".

The cameras starting with letter "A" came from Russia some years ago.
