Our donor inherited this Leica M3 Rangefinder, double-stroke camera, Serial # 834183, by Ernst Leitz Wetzlar of Germany from his uncle. Ernst Leitz Collapsible GmbH Wetzlar Summicron f=5cm 1:2 lens, Serial # 1369343. Leica-Meter MC light meter for Lecia M1, M2, M3 film cameras. Ernst Leitz Wetzlar UV filter. Two part leather Leica camera case. It’s been in storage for a long while and almost nothing is known about its history. The shutter is operational and the film advances and rewinds. Cosmetically, the camera has some missing vulcanite in the lower front (see next to last photo) and it’s very much in need of a professional cleaning and adjustment. The lens glass appears to be clear and free from scratches, and the extension works smoothly. The Leitz-meter turns on and reacts to light. The leather case is no longer supple and has some missing stitching – but it does do a good job of protecting the camera. Please check out our other Leitz Leica items from the same donor!
