Congrats... always dream of finding a garage sale/pawn shop bargain.
However I only have a story of woe... years ago my wife and I drove 2000kms (one way!) to help her parents clean up/out her great Aunts house and belongings after she had been moved to a high care home. Amongst the years of junk was an early Leica of some sort. Although I knew it was something 'special' it got put in a box and that was the last I saw of it. Various trinkets got distributed to family members but that camera never surfaced again
