Leica MP black paint
Item Details
Description
Diese Leica MP wurde am 12. Oktober 1957 an die seinerzeitige Leitz-Vertretung in Norwegen als silbern verchromte Kamera geliefert. In den 1960er Jahren erfolgte im Zuge einer Reparatur im Werk auf Kundenwunsch die Umarbeitung in eine schwarz lackierte Ausführung. Ebenso die Umrüstung in Einzelschwungaufzug mit langem Transporthebel. Typische MP Reparatur-Gehäuseschale mit runden Trageösen. Blitzbuchsen umgerüstet für Standard-Stecker. Gussnummer 110679. Gravur "P-314" auf der Unterseite des Verschlussrahmens. Interessant sind die drei Ausfräsungen im Bildfenster offenbar zur Markierung der Bildseite. Leicavit MP mit 1/4" Stativgewinde.

Dabei: Gutachten von Ottmar Michaely.

This Leica MP was delivered to the then Leitz agency in Norway on October 12th 1957 as a silver chrome-plated camera. In the 1960s, as part of a factory repair, it was reworked into a black finished version on customer's request. The same applies to the conversion to a single stroke winding mechanism with long transport lever. Typical MP repair shell with round strap lugs. Flash sockets modified to fit standard plug. Casting number 110679. The shutter crate engraved "P-314" on the bottom. The three cut-outs in the image window, apparently for marking the side of the picture, are interesting. Leicavit MP with 1/4" tripod thread.

Included: Expertise by Ottmar Michaely.
