Collector’s Item

We would like to warmly recommend this item to collectors. Our Collector’s Items excel in rarity and/or excellent cosmetic condition (Mint).

Leica IIIB from WW2 with rare inscription N-L

This rare Leica 3B camera body was made during World War II. It bears the N-L inscription. The previous owner also professionally had his name engraved in the top plate. The flash connections were added later.

The shutter runs a bit heavy and is probably not completely accurate anymore. A service is required for correct operation. Anyway, this is an interesting item for collectors.

The camera number is 346141. Including original Leica IIIB camera cap.
