So what's the accepted protocol for refurbishing a Leica II? Is it politically correct to send it off for a CLA and perhaps doing a recovering job myself? Or is this a camera that should be left "as is" and let the collectors have it's way with it? What about repairing the leather case...or just leave well enough alone. I don't see many IIs around, mostly the III series. I've stumbled into a camera and 5cm Elmar, and according to the numbers were both made in 1937. I have neither the time or money to start a "collection", but thought it would make an interesting user (was that an audible gasp from Leicaphiles around the globe?) at the ridiculously low price (I believe) for which it was purchased. If it's OK to do, got any suggestions for facilities that would do a reasonably priced CLA? A return to Germany is out of the question in the budget, I'm sure.
