    But it's not numbered. You can buy this box for your mint but boxless lens, forge the number and add at least 200 pounds to the value.....

    On the other hand a Noctilux lens for £350 'buy it now' stinks of possibly being 'knocked off' (stolen). A Noctilux for sale anywhere else would be far far more than this. You would pay double for a late model Summicron.

    It's a cardboard box.

    C'mon, it's not just a cardboard box...it's a Leica cardboard box!

    A Leica expensive box...very much Leica indeed. I can imagine the cost of the lens fitting, or befitting, this expensive box.

    In the rare book realm sometimes the (proper) dust jacket from a 1st edition is worth nearly as much as the book itself.
    What's a Noctilux sans box worth compared to one with the (a) box?
