Shown here is a Leica Model 3 B, sn. Comes with a 50MM 2.0 Summitar Lens not coated. I read that on these old lens’, that after years of use and being outside they sort of build up some kind of film on the outer glass that acts as a coating. This lens has virtually no cleaning marks and no visible marks to the naked eye. All functions work as they should. Seems if the camera sits for a long period. The lens aperture adjustment seems a little stiff but after moving it back and forth a few time, it works well. In the summer when it is warm this is never a problem. Comes with the correct lens cap. The camera itself works well. All shutter speeds work and sound correct to the naked ear, even the slow speeds. Rangefinder and viewfinder clear. Correct take-up spool is included. I looking at the images you will notice some very minor marks on the top near the serial number area. On the bottom plate there are some marks and about 3 very minor bumps, hardly noticeable in the images. Included is a serviceable case that needs a new strap. The 3 holder loops are present/. I have owned this camera for about 25 years. It was serviced by John Maddox some time back. He no longer works on SM Leica’s. The 3B model was only produced for not quite 3 years in the late 1930s. It was not a big production run. Main differences are , the last model with the shorter bodies, re-reinforced front to handle the heavier lens’ and the single eye piece like the 3C.
