Description
-Serial #397xxx
-Lens Serial #412xxxx
-Special Edition number xx/20 copies made * Very nice # 
-Special edition of the analogue M3-P commemorating
the 20th anniversary of the Leica Shop in Vienna
-Top Plate in typical vintage Engraving with "Classic" Leica script M3 style, 
body clad in vulcanite.

This was a very special set from the start. None were offered on the open market as they were sold out immediately.
This was also a revolutionary lens at the time to have the 0.95 as well the only opportunity to have it in SILVER finish. 
Leica only released the SILVER NOCTILUX-M 50mm 0.95 as part of this set. 
At the time, the Silver Noctilux was not part of the regular production so buyers were going crazy, not only for the camera, but also for the lens being in Silver finish ( I was one of them )
Now, the camera is basically impossible to find, similar to the M3D ( only 16 made ) and part of a very special special edition set that checks off all the "collectible" likable features.
An incredible find. Always prized and will continue to rise in conductibility and value

THIS SET IS NEW OPEN BOX, NEVER USED

I can not stress the beauty, rarity and collectibilty of this set.
The only other set was the MA Hammertone with the matching Noctilux-M 50mm 0.95 which was made as a 25 limited edition and another 25 piece were made after for the lens only
The FULL SET MA Hammertone camera and lens, ( similar to this set  but I think this camera is more beautiful ) recently sold for over $165,000
This camera set is a sure bet, very desirable and will surely appeal to the highest and most prominent collectors.
You will not find another on the market.
A pleasure to have and a rarity to find.
