[SOLD] Leica M3 Rangefinder (single stroke), 50mm/f2 Summicron lens

For sale is a single-stroke Leica M3 camera in good user condition (serial no.: 998102). The cosmetic condition of the camera is accurately depicted in the photos. The finish has a few small scratches and dents. The original vulcanite has been replaced by leatherette. The internal mechanical condition is excellent. The shutter curtains are in beautiful condition while the rangefinder is clean and clear, and operates smoothly. Ask for $520 ($500 if you could avoid credit/debit funded paypal payment) + actual shipping.

The collapsible summicron lens is in excellent plus condition with both aperture and focus operating smoothly and the glass is free from scratches, fog or haze. Cosmetically it's also great. Ask for $310 ($300 if you could avoid credit/debit funded paypal payment) + actual shipping. SOLD

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks; I think I shot less than 5 rolls with it, but since I am not the original owner, I believe the total shutter counts would be much more than that (considering its age).....

The "M3" letters are bigger than usual, might be made in Canada, somewhat rare.

Looking at the rubs on the pressure plate this camera has not been abused by being left on a shelf. Very well broken in and ready to go.

I linked to the add on a Leica forum if you don't mind shipping to Europe.
I'd love it, but already have enough rangefinders (well you never have enough...)

Hi, I followed the link given by Sustitute on the french leica forum.
Do you have any idea how much it would cost shipping to France?
I "might" be interested in your M3...

Best regards
