Appearance is close to the ideal. The blinds move well, the shutter is working, the excerpts work out, but I can not guarantee correctness, the threads on the cover have parted (pointed out in the photo)

Note. Production-1 - the name of the camera is printed in block letters, unlike the later models, which are written in uppercase.
After the end of World War II in 1945, Germany had to pay military reparations in accordance with the peace agreement. Among many famous German products, Russia demanded the famous cameras Zeiss Contax II and Contax III as war reparations. Before the plant was destroyed as a result of the bombing, Contax cameras were produced on Zeiss Ikon AG in Dresden, the capital of the German photographic industry. By the 45th year, it was already the Russian zone of occupied Germany.
The Soviet occupying force, the Soviet Military Administration in Germany (SWAG), offered Zeiss several good high-paying projects, as well as many orders that could not be rejected. Among them was the task of organizing the production of 5000 Contax cameras per month in a suitable place in the Soviet Union. The working title of this cell was to be Volga.
In 1947, about 2000 Contax cameras were officially manufactured at the Zeiss plant in Jena (Jena). Most of them were cameras of the Contax II model, along with several copies of Contax III and others, with the already new name "KYIV", written in bold Cyrillic script.
In October 1947, Zeiss transferred the 3 newly built production lines to the Soviet Union as a reparation. The promise of SWAG-a that they would leave the third line to Carl Zeiss in Germany, as it turned out, was not worth even the paper on which it was written.
But, even after the transfer, fixed by the agreement, until the early 1950s, the limited series of Contax cameras called "Kiev" were still manufactured at the Carl Zeiss plant in Jena.
