Leica III Serial #112942 Black with excellent Summitar 5cm – 50mm 1:2 L39 lens, eveready case. The condition as below. Excellent with minimum wear marks on the chrome surfaces, focus and aperture smooth, blades clean, folding mechanism smooth and holding firmly in place, lens without fungus, scratches or haze. Scattered dust specs inside but far from justifying cleaning. A one of a kind specimen of this prestigious lens. Fully operational and making great pictures. Speeds precise, high and low, curtains in good condition, rangefinder clear as it gets for the age making precise readings. Film advance and frame counting working as it should. Lower cover adjusting and locking smoothly. Take up spool included. Shark skin leatherette in excellent condition. The enamel coating shows extensive brassing and peeling. Areas around embossed letter markings lost painting and base brass exposed. Maybe the embossing process has originally used heath that affected the enamel. The result of these processes was an elegant old look, in my opinion. I think the pictures may help you with yours. Includes body cap, clip on plastic one, useful but charmless! Eveready leather case in very good condition, with. The strap is safe but with cracks on the leather. This set is ready for immediate use.
