Subsequently I got in touch with the local Leica repair guru and had him do his thing. Work done April 2017. The original leather case is included, and is showing its age but good overall. As you can see below, it got the full treatment including converting it to single stroke film advance. Number 854235 , puts year of manufacture at 1957 Recent CLA by YYE Camera in Ma Here’s the details: CLA Recover Convert to SS Replace front Prism Summicron 50/2.0 CLA Cleaned blades, cleaned optics, tested with film and given a clean bill of health. The front lens element has some cleaning marks from a previous user but overall is acceptable. The inner lens element has been cleaned and haze removed, no issues. Since I emptied the piggy bank for this work, the reserve is higher this time around to cover my outlay. If it doesn’t sell I won’t be heartbroken as now I know it has been serviced properly and I won’t mind seeing it on the shelf.
