This is a wonderful and complete example of the FAMOUS and very limited and RARE Leica stereo lens.
Made in Midland Canada. This is really the OFFICIAL first batch of this lens.
Although the lens was first made in 1940 with some Wetzlar "prototype" examples ( which are very VERY expensive up to $50,000 )
The first batch of 500pc in MIDLAND Canada was made in 1954 which this lens was in...
|1124001||1124500||Leica Stemar 3.3 cm f/3.5||1954||500|
Total of only 1500+ lenses were made in 1954 only in 4 more batches through the year.
A very rare lens, highly complicated, very technical, specific stereo use and was a marvel of technology at the time.
A testament to Leica's capabilities and precision.
This is a work of art and in my opinion, undervalued.
It is a Stereo lens, brass body construction, executed perfectly. And this example is complete, MINT, all the caps, finder, prism, and the desirable OTHRE SLIDE VIEWER which you rarely see and ALL with the original boxes.
This has been babied and well kept for almost 70 years now! AMAZING!
