This Contax IIIa black dial chrome camera rangefinder body is in good user condition cosmetically, mechanically and optically. Serial #T36841. Classic IIIa rangefinder body. Classic IIIa body with the built-in selenium meter. Minor bubbling on the back door which is typical for the Contax rangefinders. The meter is no longer working which is typical as nearly all have long since ceased to function from years of use. Also the top speed 1/1250 the shutter is sticking which is also very typical for these bodies. Slow speeds are firing well. Shows signs of modest wear. A great example to use.
