An original 0 series sells for over $3,000,000-,5,000,000 now and about 20 made (...regardless of the $15,000,000 sale of No. 05 that sold that was owned by Barnack himself so that is a stand alone camera)
There are 2000 of these 10500 replicas so it would make sense that the value is $30,000-50,000 let even take off another $0, so call it $3,000-$5,000. Either the 0 series is overprices ( I think not and the buyers at that level I cant compare ) or this is undervalued at $1995. 
A wonderful tribute and a great value for a piece of Leica history! 
Just fantastic in every respect!
