This camera started life as a Leica IIIC body, which was then
sent back to Leica to be upgraded to a IIIF Black Dial body.
The upgrade included the flash sync port on the rear of the top plate,
the flash sync dial around the shutter speed dial, the ISO reminder
in the film advance knob and the nicest upgrade was the Self timer.

This is now a full IIIF BD SELF TIMER camera body!

A wonderful piece of history and hard to find upgraded IIIC - IIIF camera especially with the self timer...NICE!
