Item Details
Description
Only approx. 25 of these cameras were produced to test the market in 1923, two years before the commercial introduction of the Leica A. The offered camera is in beautiful and fully working condition, all parts including the paintwork are original, with the matching lens cover and the original folding finder. The Leica 0-Series is one of the major rarities in camera history - camera no.116 sold at WestLicht auction in 2012 was the most expensive camera ever sold - the offered camera is probably the most original and best condition example, only about three cameras are known with the original folding viewfinder. It also has the unique film spool and take-up spool. Illustrated in Lager I page 14., delivered to Sauppe from New York. Provenience: the famous collection of Jim Jannard !
