A special version of a 1955 Leica M3 was sold at an auction in Vienna for 1,680,000.00.

It belongs to a limited series developed after a single camera customized for "Life" photographer Davis Douglas Duncan. Actually it is not clear if this single piece IS the special version or belongs to the very limited series that was produced after it.
