It may be a "newer" Korona verison.

I'd guess an unpainted Agfa Ansco but it's hard to tell from a single photo, many of these old tail board cameras looked a lot alike.

As soon as I finish the replacement bellows, I will put it to work. I lug a Graphic View around.

It looks like it will be a Korona.
Here are some more pics. A couple of things were changed by someone. The lower lens board retainer has been change for some reason and the crossbrace on top of the front standard should be metal. I will have to change that so the front will full rise available

I found it.
It is a RHS MODEL A made by the Raygram Corp of NYC in the late 30's or early 40's
I found a referance to it in the archives. Some guy has one just like mine in his collection, but I haven't found anymore info, yet.
