    I am selling a recovered and freshly CLA'd Leica IIIc from 1950. I'm not sure what the covering material is - probably something from Camera Leather. The cover gives the camera a nice tactile feel and makes gripping it effortless. The covering was well done and it looks good too (to me at least!).

    Opto-mechanically this camera is in very good condition in all respects. It has one of the brightest rangefinder patches that I've seen on a Leica bottom loader. A fine precision rangefinder. Sold as shown with take-up spool.

    Price: $350 plus insured shipping

    Dave, that covering is Griptac, a 3M product originally made for golf club handles. It probably did come from Cameraleather, since they sell Griptac pre-cut for lots of cameras.
