These LEICA TECHNIK cameras were INTERNAL cameras that were used for either PHOTOKINA display test camera and/or internal BETREIBSK style cameras. 
Very rare and hard to find. These are wonderful collectibles and in 20 years, I have only seen a few in both SM LTM camera and M cameras. VERY RARE!

Equally and if not MORE RARE than a MIDLAND marked camera. I have had a few Midland Marked cameras but NEVER have I had a TECHNIK. 
Truly RARE and something money can not always buy because they are so hard to find
