The Ansco Clipper and Flash Clipper were simple non-adjustable cameras made by Agfa Ansco, later Ansco, from the 1930s into the 1950s. (The series began as the Agfa Ansco PD16 Clipper, but Agfa branding was dropped during the WWII years.)

The Autoreflex T was the first focal plane shutter 35mm SLRs with auto-exposure and TTL metering combined in one body. In Japan it was sold as FTA, in Germany as Revue Autoreflex TTL. It is fully mechanical with shutter-priority auto exposure. The batteries (two PX 675 type mercury cells) were only needed for the CdS light meter.

1A ANSCO ROYAL FOLDING CAMERA VINTAGE IN GREAT SHAPE WITH NEAT LEATHER CASE (leather case handle is broken see pictures)
Ansco was an American manufacturer of camera equipment in Binghamton, New York. This camera does NOT have the label and lens of the “Readyset” Royal, it is completely different. See Pictures, this camera is in very good shape for the age and needs only a small amount of cleaning on the leg as seen in pictures. The sliders are in great shape.
There are many cameras out there with the “Readyset” name for sale but only a few of this rare one.
The Model 3A Folding Ansco was produced from 1914 to 1932.
Lifting the leather, much of which has already come loose, reveals these little mounds of green copper oxide over the head of every rivet. Corrosion is not limited to the rivets; little curls of copper oxide protrude from the base of the focusing rails and patches of corrosion are found on the film winding lever and other brass parts where the plating has worn. Elsewhere, the leather is dry and the glue has failed, leaving parts of the covering hanging.
It should be noted, however, that the Ansco has characteristics that make it ideal for restoration. See all the pictures before purchasing!
The experienced eye will notice that the leather is entirely intact with no tears or missing pieces, the bellows are supple with no corner wear or separation, the lens is clear and without fungus or edge separation, and the camera is structurally completely intact. The Ansco is therefore an excellent candidate for a restoration which, with the exception of a shutter cleaning, should be entirely cosmetic and we have the Original Leather Case (also in need of repair)
