    This is a Leica M3 double stroke model from 1957. All functions on the camera appear to be in working condition, but I've not film tested it. The shutter speeds sound good, the self timer works, the curtains look clean, and the rangefinder looks accurate. The shutter advance is smooth, film counter works as it should, and the frame selection lever works properly. The camera is in so-so cosmetic condition with a chip off the leatherette on the front, a free-hand id number engraved on the back of the camera, and some marks on the top and bottom plate chrome. This camera would make a good user however and my price is hard to beat.

    Price: $475 plus insured shipping. USPS Money order preferred for payment. I ship to most countries.

    If bblhed doesn't go for it, I may be interested. Have dreamed of an M3 for a while ;-) Would you post to Australia? Thank you.

    Somebody had better get this. I have one and don't need another, but this price would be hard to turn down!
