This Leica Leicavit original MP black paint finished is in condition overall. Originally released and made in the MID 1950's as an accessory for the venerable Leica MP and M2 it was quickly adopted by photojournalists for its ease of use and rapid wind capabilities. Not many vintage Leicavits were made especially in black paint. This particular Leicavit is a fabulous Black paint version. It has the classic and very desirable "Hand written" Leicavit script with MP in block letters. THE ORIGINAL Leicavit SOOYM-M and marked on the back as it should Ernst Leitz GmbH Wetzlar Germany. 
It is being sold with its even more rare and desirable original Leica SYOOM-M box. 
This particular example was with an original M2 that were both refinished in the 1970's from its original owner. You can tell this is not a recent paint job. 
This is original Leica paint from the Germany Wetzlar factory.
It has original vintage late 1970 finish that has been used ever so slightly and has original paint BUBBLES which take decades to patina. 
Better than its original condition and still factory Leica paint
