    Last week, I was roaming in a local yard sale when I saw on a table two folding cameras, in closed position.
    I slightly opened them and... waooh! rapidly closed them back.
    Trying to hide my excitement I bargained during few seconds to obtain the lot for 40 euros (about 45 USD).
    The two gems I got are as follows:

    A Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta C (531/2)
    This coupled rangefinder camera from Germany is the 1949/1950 version fitted with a Compur Rapid shutter and a rare Tessar Opton lens.

    A "Teleroy" from the French manufacturer Royer. Produced at the same period of time as the Zeiss.
    It is also of the coupled rangefinder type. Fitted with a nice SOM Berthiot Flor treated lens and characterized by its yellow tinted rangefinder lens.

    I already had a Teleroy camera in my collection but with the distance numbers engraved in feet on the lens. Some evidence that Royer was trying to export at the time.

    They both look very clean, especially the Super Ikonta. I see that Tessar lens!

    Nice score.
