Looks like a 4x5 RB Auto to these eyes.

Best,

It is a post 1915 RB Auto. The design changed from a squarish box to the curved inward at the top front in 1916. The RB Auto is the only Graflex with this design. The other clue is the bed which is hinged at the bottom, other Graflexes the front standard is on a track or rail that extends from the main body.

Or 3.25" x 4.25" RB Auto. Because of the ski jump curve in front of the hood, probably 1917 or later.

Yup - could be for sure. I thought it looked like a bit of an armful for a 3x4, but folks were smaller in them days.
