Electroplating difference between Leica and FED and Turkish Chrome Story
What do you think , is there difference between LTM Copper Nickel Chrome on Brass electroplating technology and FED Electroplated Body Finish.
If they are same - do you think early , after ww2 or late 50s model plating was the best - may be sacrificing a cheap camera small area for thickness measurement is easier than the Leica camera.
But I found a new hobby , is to exact replication of Leica finish. I can may be buy a junk Leica body and test , next summer.
By the way there is no Chrome Ore at Germany and all the Chrome went from Anatolia . Around 40s , you are seeing an Anatolian coating at Leicas.
