Description

-Rare early Leica I (Model A) with the 'Mushroom' style shutter release button and 'hockey stick' style infinity focus lock
-Features the mushroom release button, non-feathered arrows, hockey stick infinity focus lock and nickel plate finish on the knobs and lens

This is a beautifully restored black paint camera. The black paint was refinished and looks outstanding against the rich, golden nickle finish highlights of the knobs, dials and lens. 
The mushroom release button is a very nice feature and hard to find. A very early 4 digit # 8194. A very nice camera!
