    Leica iiia

    This Leica iiia is in excellent working order. All speeds sound good and have given me excellent exposures. Curtains are great looking and are surely relatively recent replacements. Cover is brown, and in fine condition. Rangefinder is properly aligned and with good contrast. Viewfinder looks very good. This camera is ready to shoot.

    Wear from use over the years (70+), including a horizontal scratch below the Leica engraving on the top plate, and scratches and wear on the bottom plate. Please contact me (PM is good) if you're interested or have questions about the camera.

    $225 plus shipping in the US.USD
    Price : 225.00

    If the black has faded worn, then the leather does look a brown/black. The curtains on my IIIa which was probably more heavily used and worn are original and still look perfect.

    The simple way to check a IIIa shutter is to set it to 1/8 sec. If it fires at 1/20 it needs an adjustment

    Sorry for the delayed response to questions. I am not receiving notices that this thread has been replied to.

    The cover is a brown black, or soft black, when compared to something like a cold black of a Canon F-1. The covering is nice and soft feeling and in great shape. My guess is that it has been replaced at some time.

    The shutter has given me great results. Firing is distinctly different between 1/20 and 1/8.

    I will check back to this thread, but if you want an answer more quickly please PM me. In the meantime, I will try to figure how to receive notices about questions on this thread.

    Thanks.
