This is a very VERY rare example of a M4 camera, Of the 1750 JAHRE cameras made only 350 examples made and marked MIDLAND. Exceptionally rare and if you think of it, MORE original MP cameras were made ( 400+) than these MIDLAND Marked M4 JAHRE cameras.

C seal still intact and the condition is AS NEW from the day it left the factory almost 50 years ago!

Mechanics 9+/10
-Shutter speeds* due to the fact that this camera has never been serviced or opened this does not apply as a collectors condition camera but the shutter does work. ***
-All camera functions are working normally
-Shutter curtain is wrinkle and light leak free

Optics 9+/10
-Viewfinder/rangefinder is clean

Faint haze over near 50 years as it was never serviced, cleaned or touched!

I can not stress the RARITY of this camera, beauty and really a must have for any collector or enthusiast. The LAST of the TRUE Leica M cameras in my opinion.

A MIDLAND M4 JAHRE are almost never found and these are really something special and of all other 50 JAHRE peices ( CL, M5, SL camera ) the M4 was the only one with the marking MIDLAND and only 350 of 1750 total made.
Very desirable and VERY VERY rare!

A pleasure to have and enjoy in such condition, complete and a great history!
