    Default A Leica camera of the KM

    I can get this camera,what do you think of it?
    The number on top of the camera is correct,it is from a LeicaIIIC from 1941/'42 according to the numberlists of Leica.
    The lens is from a more early date 1939 if I am correct.
    It has a kriegs-marine eagle and number on the backside and only the KM eagle on the lens.
    Any comments are welcome.
    With kind regards,
    Gerard.

    Eagle looks dubious... if it is in fact a fake, what a sad thing to do to a wartime Leica which are quite valuable without the fake engravings.

    Is this not one of the many Russian copies that are out there?

    Just from the thread title you know this is going to be a fake Russian copy, save your money.

    Thanks,
    and indeed I canceled the deal,however it is a real Leica and it is made during the war,according to several Leica collectors and the numbering.
    Only the KM eagle is put on later it to increase it's value.
    The Russian copy's have for example 4 screws in front,were the real Leica doesn't have them.

    I know nothing about camera's but I doubt adding an eagle would increase its value if its a real leica. Others may know differently and I stand to be corrected.

    A Leica used by the Kriegs Marine is for wartime collectors almost dubbel the value than a normal one.
    Why:they are very rare and hard to find.
    Look here for example:
    Kriegsmarine IIIc [Archive] - Rangefinderforum.com
    Kriegsmarine IIIc - Rangefinderforum.com

    Couldn't make much of the threads on that forum, but the camera in question is/was a real Leica IIIc, made in 1942 or right around that date, these are actually quite hard to find, so just a terrible shame to have it defaced like that really. Also one of the last of the chrome plated cameras because of materiel shortages. By this time all of E Leitz's output was going to the military or other government agencies.

    There you go, just another historic piece ruined for money, just like the polished 10 x 80 binoculars you see for mega bucks.

    I particularly like the eagle on the lens....as if the fake by the viewfinder wasn't enough, they had to add a superfluous Second one on the lens just to be safe...
