Transparent

Made only for dealer displays these beautiful variations do not have serial numbers so quantities are hard to find. The cameras in the collection are all “Black Phillips” (except transparent!) so that dates them to late 1980.

The correct lens for the transparent is a real 24mm but has the word “DUMMY” stamped on the lower barrel. This lens is very hard to find but I’ve managed to track a couple down!

The serial numbers so far are 1291387 and 2026618 which suggests that the transparents were made throughout production. A collector in Germany has a DUMMY No. 2024965.

If you have a DUMMY then please email me with the serial number, thanks. steve@pentax110.co.uk
