A very special set and in my humble opinion UNDERVALUED. For such a historic camera, with the history of Leica along with where Leica is today.
Also, from a very basic comparative perspective, a regular M6 is now $3000 and the lens also $3000. This is a VERY SPECIAL set and wonderful presentation and story behind it. More so for the history and heritage of Leica and its enthusiast. This should be A MUST HAVE.
You would surely want to have this is over a M6J over ($8000-$10000 value ) or M6 ROYAL WEDDING ( also $8000-$10000 ) of another set as this one has a BETTER LENS and a better story. Imagine, you can have the ACTUAL LEICA STOCK in hand. Very nice!
I personally very much believe and enjoy this set. The perfect combination, great finish, top plate, body cover, matching # 35mm 1.4 ASPH , the box and THE STOCK is really wonderful.
A pleasure to have and enjoy!
