Please read this carefully!!! Camera serial number 921775. You get a Leica M3 Single Stroke chrome body. This camera was made in 1958 in Wetzlar, Germany. The camera is in excellent working condition. The rangefinder works perfectly and is accurate. The viewfinder looks good and the rangefinder is bright and accurate. The shutter works at all speeds. I do not have a speed tester, but all the speeds sound OK to me. The self timer works. All the framelines are bright. You get the camera, body cap, take up spool and import certificate. These are the body condition issues so PLEASE take the time to read this information. The viewfinder is very clean and the rangefinder window is bright and contrasty. The framelines are bright. I will include a cap for the bulb flash connection and a PC sync for the electronic flash connection. There is general wear (brightmarks) on the top plate on the chrome finish. The baseplate shows general brightmark wear. There is no wear above the strap lugs. The first and second shutter curtains look very clean. The camera has some missing vulcanite. There are 2 sections on the back door (above and below) the film reminder indicator. The center of the film reminder indicator is missing the red center trim. There is a small chip in the vulcanite next to the base plate connection pin. A fair overall grade is ex or 8. This was bought to be used and not collected, but of course now it is a collectible camera, but still an excellent camera to use. Please look closely at the image. What you see is what you get.
