    Some photos of my recent find. A WWII Leica IIIC (stepper variant) Luftwaffen-Eigentum. Delivered to the Luftwaffe on 15.10.1940. (serial numbers check out and confirm it) It still has it's original red shutter curtain. I collect both militaria and vintage cameras. I mostly buy cameras to use but there are some exceptions. This is a camera that I won't use

    I don't know anything about these but this sure looks fantastic. Meets both of your collecting interests to boot! Can't beat that!

    Now...if it is in working order, I certainly would be tempted to shoot at least one roll of film in it.

    Edit: Maybe at a re-enactor event too boot! In black and white of course
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    It is in working order but I'd feel silly using it. I have bodies without the engraving that will give exactly the same result! (If I use the same lens ofcourse)..

    Yes, you have to be very careful. I have handled one or two Russian 'Leicas'. They can be quite convincing ( they're usually based on the FED 35mm camera which was itself virtually a direct copy of the Leica ).


    Fortunately, the fakers often can't resist putting a prominent Swastika somewhere or other on the camera to make it 'realistic'. And also, on close inspection, the edges of the engraving a just too 'sharp'.

    But - buyer very much beware !
