Product Description

Details

Very rare almost like new condition set of 2 Leica M4 black chrome 50 Years cameras. One is made in Canada and the other one is made in Wetzlar Germany. Some of these cameras were made in Canada and some were made in the Wetzlar. The one which was made in Canada shows the engraving Ernst Leitz Canada Ltd. Midland, Canada on top the top plate while the Wetzlar one shows Ernst Leitz GMBH Wetzlar, Germany on the top plate. Both cameras do not show any signs of use. Of course no dings or dents. Technically in perfect working condition. Both cameras come from a collection of several Leica M4 cameras. Leica made about 9000 cameras in black from which 1750 were engraved with 50 Years. Only 350 of these were made in Canada and the other 1400 were made in Wetzlar. Leica also made the SL2, CL and M5 with 50 Years engraving. All had a special number 3 digit number prefixed with a single letter from the word LEICA on the back. The one from Canada has special number 008-C and the Wetzlar one has special number 169-E. Very interesting set of Leica M4 cameras. Don't miss this one.
