Product Description

Details

Very interesting complete and hard to find Leica M6 Historica set the 50mm f2 Summicron-M, 28-35-50mm f4 Tri-Elmar-M Silver and a Leicavit. Both M6 and 50mm lens has the same limited edition number 078/150. The Tri-Elmar (serial number 3891041) and the Leicavit (serial number 00735) do not have limited edition number. 

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the German Historical Society a special edition of 150 units of LEICA M6 in a very distinctive fashion. A Leica 50mm f2 Summicron-M in silver finish was sold together with the camera in a nice wooden presentation box. After this Leica Historica also made a 28-35-50mm f4 Tri-Elmar-M in silver finish and a Leicavit in silver finish. In total the following numbers were made:

In 1995 150 units Leica M6 silver model with turquoise leather, engraving "20 Jahre Leica Historica" on camera and lens (Leica 50mm f2 Summicron-M with built-in hood)
In 2000 75 units Leica 28-35-50mm f4 Tri-Elmar-M silver, engraving "25 Jahre Leica Historica" on the lens
In 2005 40 units Leicavit-M silver, engraving "30 Jahre Leica-Historica" on the front

The M6 and 50mm are in new condition with no signs of use. It is complete with box and papers etc. The Tri-Elmar which is 6-bit coded at Leica shows some small signs of use on the aperture ring and comes with box and papers as well. The Leicavit doesn't comes with any accessories.

With only 40 units of the Leicavit it is needless to say that the complete set is a real rarity. Not often seen on the market. Great and rare set.
