Good Afternoon!

I'm trying to determine the manufacture date of the above Pentax LX film camera. I tried the SN Database to no avail. The number didn't even come up! Can anyone direct me to determining the manufacture date?

Thank you.

It isn't in the database because no one has entered it yet. Add it and you'll get your first "Like". Judging from the serials that are in the database it is probably circa 1993 if 534xxxx are from 1991...

Unfortunately Pentax isn’t like some other brands (Nikon, Leica etc) where serial numbers can be used to give a precise manufacturing date. The best you’ll get is a guesstimation…

The SN database is a user generated list, and none of those users know exactly when their body was made either…
