This early 1960 Leica M2 chrome camera rangefinder body is in mint condition cosmetically, mechanically and optically. Serial #987300. Rare ELC version made in Midland Canada. Not only is this an ELC version but this is the extremely rare example that has the 'Midland Ontario' script on the top plate. Of the nearly 100,000 M2 examples made only 1580 were made in Canada. Of those 1580 only a few dozen examples featured this extremely unique top plate script. This is one of the most desirable and rare M2's you can find. And it is in pristine condition. A very rare and desirable example. Even more rare than an original black paint M2. Made in 1960 (the second year of production for Midland ELC's). The classic Leica M2 chrome rangefinder. Shows virtually no signs of use. In phenomenal condition overall.
