Examples (no cid in source code):

https://plus.google.com/114507019658889648955/about
https://plus.google.com/113369780781494998810/about - Chipotle Mexican Grill in New Providence.

Searching for cid in source code gives you a gcid (Google category)

Probably rolled out to US first. Yes, if you already knew the CID it will still work.

https://plus.google.com/+DivorceLawyerLongIsland/about - no cid in source code
https://maps.google.com/maps?cid=454307961374308395 - does forward to the Google+ Business page

UPDATE:
Utilizing the same page in MapMaker, you can find it here in the code:
http://www.google.com/mapmaker?iwloc=0_0&fmi=0_0&gw=39&fid=9937240773220002387:454307961374308395&dtab=overview&ll=40.785342,-73.405444&spn=0.21368,0.263672&z=12&lyt=large_map_v3&hll=40.791565,-73.416509&hyaw=275.46149292122846

https://cidfinder.view3.com/ also works great! Thanks for the tip!
