This is a rare prewar 35mm Contax I Rangefinder camera produced in 1935 by Zeiss Ikon. Because of the limited run and age, it is unusual to find a complete camera. This one is truly complete, with film spindle, leather case, and the original manual and price list. The camera itself is in good condition, with some small areas of missing paint. It seems operational, but I have not tested film in it recently. This camera was my grandfathers and was well taken care of, passed down to my father, then me. The leather case shows some expected wear for such an old camera, but is fully intact, including the strap. The manual and price list are in near perfect condition, with some discoloration from age. The lens is a Carl Zeiss Sonnar 1:1,5 f=5cm. Please look closely at the photos or ask questions if needed. This is a perfect item for collectors and photographers with a historical interest.
