-Extremely rare and hard to find VERY RARE BLACK STEEL RIM Summilux 35mm F1.4 M 1st version steel rim bayonet mount lens

A fantastic example. Very clean and optically clean as well. Hard to find in this condition!
This a not only a very RARE lens to find in black, but also this is a desirable LATE serial number and also a RED SCALE.

A must have for any collector or enthusiast.

The glass is fantastic. The body is in outstanding condition. Really one of the best examples I have had.
I sold a early ( usually 177xxxx serial no. ) not long ago for $28500. These are very rare to find a RED SCALE later number. These lenses are already impossible to find and are getting even harder and harder to find especially in this condition. A must have for any collector or enthusiast.
If you are looking for the ULTIMATE collectible lens, 35mm Steel Rim in black, THIS IS IT.
Glass condition, body condition, LATE serial no., complete. I can not stress the beauty of this GEM.
A modest price considering.
