Leica M3 DS With 5cm f/2 Summicron Wetzlar, Germany 1954 Just Serviced
This is a very early production No. 702801 classic chrome M3 DS (Double Stroke). His camera was manufactured in Wetzlar, Germany in 1954 and was the 2800th Leica M3 made. The lens is a Summicron collapsible 5cm f/2. This dates from 1954. The camera you see is the camera you get. The camera and lens are in the original condition. I have serviced the camera and lens. The body works perfectly. The double stroke advance works smoothly. The rangefinder is bright and accurate. The counter works and the framelines are bright. The self timer works. The baseplate is original to the body. Overall there are no mechanical issues with the body. Cosmetically the camera is better than average for a 1st year production. There is a very small dent to the left side of the eyepiece just below the rewind knob. There is a small amount of brassing on the baseplate near the tripod hole. There are very minor meter made brightmarks over the M3 designation. The eyepiece has some brassing. The back door has minor wear. The self timer mounting screw has some brassing. The lens cosmetics are nice and the focus is in feet. (Please see below as to glass condition). The baseplate has a 1/4 thread. The original early well used case is included. A lens cap and take up spool are included. The lens focus works smoothly and the diaphragm is smooth. There is no oil on the blades. There is no fungus, haze or separation. The only thing I could NOT REPAIR are the many front element surface scratches and coating wear. It is very obvious. You can ask questions and I encourage to do so. The Leica display stand is NOT included. I do not mark items as gifts. The item “Leica M3 DS With 5cm f/2 Summicron Wetzlar, Germany 1954 Just Serviced” is in sale since Monday, April 1, 2019.
