    I am selling my Tower 48 rangefinder camera. This is an uncommon Leica thread mount camera body from the late 1950's made my Nicca of Japan and was by Sears in the United States. The Tower 48 features a rapid advance which has a remarkably smooth single stroke action. This compact, light-weight, and precision engineered camera is a real pleasure to use with ones favorite LTM lens.

    The camera is in exceptionally good condition and fully film tested. The camera has recently undergone a complete professional CLA and the receipt for this is included with the sale.

    Sold as shown.

    Price: $450 plus insured shipping

    I can accept a money order, bank check, or PayPal in payment (or a personal check if you are known to me)

    I listed and photographed the Leotax F at the same time, and got the photos mixed up - trust me, I know the difference between these cameras.
