Here is a Google Translate translation of the story (ROBOT - Das Sammlerbuch, Hans Grahner):
In early April 1945, only a few weeks before the capitulation of the German Reich, a new relocation of the factory was ordered because of the advancing Eastern Front. They packed machines, cameras, camera components and lenses on railway carriages in order to send them to Ravensburg. This corner of southern Germany had been regarded by the then competent authorities of the III. Reich as a safe location for the resumption of production. Because of the length of the transport train two wagons were attached to another train and sent ahead. Only these two wagons have ever reached Swabia, the rest either remained in Großschönau, or had been overrun by advancing troops on their journey through Bohemia. Also Berning left with his family hurriedly in April 1945 Saxony and drove in the remaining car to Zussdorf, where he had already rented in 1944 as emergency quarters a small house.

A new start
The first time in Zussdorf Berning spent researching the whereabouts of the Robot-train from Großschönau in Saxony. In fact, he could trace only those two previously sent wagons, rather accidentally on a siding in Bad Schussenried. Their cargo had meanwhile landed in the ditch after looting or air raid and had to be picked up with tweezers by the family Berning in laborious detail work. The actual train with the production machines and cameras was lost.

Long ago I saw one and found interesting
at that time (around 1970 years) there were no fakes around.

FED-Zorki 1949 "Export" Guido@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=3413&REPLY_ID=20355 Collectors and Users Open Forum Sun, 14 Jul 2019 15:02:46 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3413 Quote:

Hello Derek

Take a look at eBay (actual auctions): FED-Zorki 1948: 600 Euro, FED-Zorki 1949: 850 Euro (both in not so good condition), an unknown (in this case faked) FED-Zorki 1949 "Export" ... much more! Or this FED-1a offered for long time there: 3000 Euro, or that TSVVS #7 offered for years: 10000 US$, now "only" 7000 US$ (not clear if faked or not).

Rare cameras are investments in our days. On former Westlicht Auctions some of them (very rare Leicas and so) are sold for more than an half of a million Euros. This are not collector prices but financial transactions like investments in art.

Best wishes - Guido

I am suprised too by the additional (?) lens on your finder.

Sorry, I had missed it when you posted.
Very interesting. Do you have an explanation?
A corrector lens to avoid spectacles?

Amitiés. Jacques.

Thanks, Lexx!

Glad you liked how this lens shoots. That's why I don’t know whether to sell it, I own it for a year now and don’t dare to do it. Although if the lens is in a decent and well-known collection, I will also be pleased because I don't use it often, it’s mostly stored in a box.

Levonsa, I've just done a search for info about the make and model of the TLR that you posted on Jan. 6. 19 and I was wondering id the apertures and spepds can be set separately even though they are linked? This would be like 3 cameras that I own (which are 35mm rangefinders but they're not Russian so I won't name them).]]>
