This very early Leica III Model F black paint rangefinder camera body is in nice condition! Serial #121651. Made in 1933, first year of production. First Leica body to feature strap lugs. Black paint finish shows some minor marks but no heavy brassing. Leatherette is all intact and lugs are clean. Typically these old black paint cameras have very significant brassing throughout. Unfortunately, the slow shutter speeds are not working correctly which is common for this camera this age.
