Description
-Camera body serial #xxxxxx 
-Lens serial #xxx/300
-Celebrating the Year Of The Rooster on the Chinese calender in 1993 this outfit was the very first Leica sold exclusively in the Chinese market
-A limited edition outfit; only 300 examples
-Limited edition #xxx/300. This is a very unusual outfit that was the first 'unofficial' outfit designated exclusively for the Chinese market before Leica had any market presence in mainland China
-300 serial numbers were originally designated but it is unconfirmed if all 300 were actually produced. One of the rarest limited edition Leica outfits out there and also very attractive. The M6 features a special rooster engraving on the top plate along with an engraving in Chinese characters which reads "Leica Good Luck"
-Also comes with a matching chrome Summicron-M 50mm f2 lens with matching limited edition serial number and Chinese engraving on the front ring. The lens alone is a very special version of a SILVER BRASS BODY version MADE IN GERMANY of the Version IV.
