Zorki Yura. A zorki 1d or 1e engraved with the text "Yura" and a date 12-4-1961. This was the date of the first manned spaceflight of Yuri Gagarin. (Yura is a nickname for Yuri) It is believed (but not verified) that a workshop outside or in cooperation with KMZ built about 500 (numbered, serial is on the topplate right above the hotshoe) of these commemorative Zorkis. Fakes are known to exist. The Yura knows only 1 version and came only in cyrillic. The lens, a collapsible I-22 is also marked Yura (in cyrillic) the camera itself came in mat chromium with black vulcanite.
By okynek: camera on the pictures is most likely fake from Arbat [:)].
