Im offering for sale the complete camera set that belonged to my grandfather who passed away many years ago. Ive been hanging on to it for a long time, mainly for sentimental reasons, but now it is time to part with it. I believe my grandfather acquired this camera and accessories new in the late 1950s and used them through the 1970s. He was a real amateur photo aficionado who specialized in black & white photography and really prized this Leica camera, and eventually transitioned into color photography. Being his prize-possession, my grandfather took very good care of this camera so it is in quite good condition. I believe the camera is still in working condition, but I dont know that for sure. I havent put film in it and tried to take and develop a photo. However, the 35mm film winding mechanism still turns and sets the trigger. When I press the trigger, I can hear the clicking sound as if a photo is being taken. Based on information I could find on the Internet, one being serial number ranges, I believe this this camera is a Leica (made in Germany), model IIf, circa. However, Im no expert on vintage cameras. One website I found showed Leica cameras in the serial number range of 821500 822000 were made in 1956. If anyone knows these cameras well, let me know if this information is incorrect. This set includes all you see in the above photos, which are. The Leica camera (Nr 821760 imprinted on top I assume, serial number). Manual, original Instruction Book. Nippon / Nikkor telephoto lens. Camera / accessories bag (believe it is leather). Tripod, collapsible stands about 42-in. Light meter (in working order, as best I can tell). Lens shade attachment. Yellow, blue, close-up, etc. The item “Leica IIf Rangefinder Camera Nr. 821760″ is in sale since Wednesday, October 05, 2016.
