This is a very RARE, special, early all black paint version M4-M camera with its matching NY electronic Motor winder.
35/90/135mm frame lines
Shutter speeds B, 1 - 1/1000th
Cat No. 10400
Top shows moderate signs of use
Original patina but some marks on one corner by the counter
Leatherette is all intact on the motor which is very rare
Black paint Lugs are clean
A nice camera overall!
Shutter speeds are working on the camera. May need a service CLA as it has not been touched in decades
Motorwinder was working but then one of the pins on the battery compartment needs replacing. Easy fix. Counter on both motor and camera are working well.
Camera functions are working well.
Viewfinder/rangefinder is bright and clean
This is a very VERY special camera. This is not your regular M4 MOTOR camera. I recently sold a M4-MOT on ebay # 284973683225 for $8000. Fair.
This camera has the EARLY black paint LUGS, BLACK PAINT BACK DOOR and the BLACK PAINT film rewind knob along with the black shutter release cup and BLACK PAINT accessory shoe screws and all
( similar to the early M4 that sell for $50,000-75,000 )
This is of the earliest type and VERY VERY RARE!
The motor can be repaired or even a new one purchased for $3000 or so but the camera is a spectacular.
VERY RARE all black paint version with black paint extras LUGS, BACK DOOR, Rewind knob, shoe and release button cup. VERY RARE!
A pleasure to have and enjoy!
