Manufacturer code? - Olympus Pen EE-S

  1. Hi,
    I have bought an Olympus Pen EE-S film (I assume mid-1960s) camera and would like to know the manufacturer code to let me know when the camera was made.
    Other forums say remove the pressure plate (done) and the 2 digit code will there. They don't say where exactly. Does anyone know and can you send a photo indicating where the code is?
  2. Followup. Other site suggested having a look under the pressure plate, which I did.
    The printed red 2 digit number
    Apparently the 5 = the assembly plant
    And the 4 is the last name of the year = 1964?

  3. i'd be surprised if it were any different to the trip35system: 5 = 1965, 4 = april.
