After a crazy day in the old camera world, I was very fortunate to become the owner of a Zeiss Contax II rangefinder! I am trying to dig around online to find serial number information for the body but so far cannot figure out when the camera was made. The serial number starts with the letter M and I can't find any mention of that letter code. Based on the serial number on the lens, I think it dates to 1939. The lens is a Sonnar 1:2 f5cm (Carl Zeiss Jena) with the number 2587***. The body number is M302** (same number on the back.) If anyone can help me figure out what year the body is I would love the help! Other info that may or may not be useful, shutter speeds marked: B 2 5 10 25 50 125 250 500 1250. Photos of the camera to follow in a day or two...
Thanks in advance,
Matt
