Another Ciro 35 with Fall Colors

The first Ciro 35 was made in 1949 by Ciro Camera of Delaware, Ohio, from modified dies acquired from the defunct Camera Company of America and their Cee-Ay 35 camera. See:

Ciro Camera then sold the dies to Graflex, and 1950 saw the production of the Graflex version of the Ciro 35. See:

I shot this gallery a few days ago with a another recently acquired example of the Graflex version. This one has the same gray lustrous lacquer paint as the one referred to above, with the gray extended to the lens barrel.
Same long-based rangefinder coupled to hellicle fousing mount.
F:3.5 / 50mm lens in (M+F) Synchromatic shutter for T, B, 200 -> 10.

After restoration, I tested the camera, most of it at Powder Valley nature center in Kirkwood, Missouri. Fall color was beginning to show promise, especially on the ridge tops.
