1959 LEICA M3 Chrome Single Stroke with 1957 9cm ELMAR, CLA’d. + LEITZ RED M3 BOX with Hang Tag & Receipt. One M3 CASE, LENS CASE, 3 LEITZ CAPS, two M3 INSTRUCTION BOOKS, a BROCHURE, a 1959 PRICE LIST & RECEIPTS. A complete period M3 outfit, pretty much what you might have walked out of the camera store with in 1959, right down to the hang tag and a receipt! M3 body #953930 is generally working well, bright VF, RF seems accurate. Speeds all sound good including 1 sec and B, but 1/2 sec & possibly 1/4 sec sound too fast & should be adjusted. Wind-on is very smooth & shutter is lovely, quiet and crisp – it seems the camera may have been serviced not too long ago. Delayed action working, frame lines bright, no missing sections. Did not check flash, but both caps are present. Cosmetically, there are some small marks on the top plate, mainly around the budda-ear strap lugs, on the edge above the VF window, on the edge below the frame counter, & a bright mark below M3. The baseplate is nice, shows only very slight wear. The Elmar 9cm #1521436 is near-mint cosmetically & was CLA’d in Jan 2013 by Youxin Ye. Controls smooth & accurate. Lens lock is very firm, not loose at all, suggesting the lens has had little use. The Leica Meter is not working – alas, few are these days. Box is pretty good except for one break (repaired) on the front lid edge. The two Leather Cases are both excellent externally, the M3 one has a particularly strong strap (many don’t) and shows just a little wear inside. Leica Literature is all original, late’50s, shows some wear and marking. Both instruction books are year-correct, 1959, one has writing on the cover. The M3 brochure is 1957.
