Nicca, Leica, Zeiss Items
Nicca 3-F. This is a nicely crafted Leica copy from Japan made in 1956 or 1957. The condition is very good. The shutter fires at all speeds and sounds correct. The shutter curtains look smooth and undamaged. The rangefinder is accurate with decent patch brightness for this type of camera, with correct vertical and horizontal alignment. The mechanical motions are smooth. The viewfinder window has a slight haze, but is still quite usable. Cosmetically the camera is also in very good condition with what appears to be sharkskin which is fully intact. There is a slight hint of a dimple or bright spot right before the engraving of "Nicca" on the top plate. The Nicca 3-F has the virtue of being synced for electronic flash (at 1/25 sec). Sold as shown with a takeup spool. More details in the Nicca 3-F are available at this Web link: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/iannorris..._n/nicca3f.htm Price: $225 plus insured shipping
Leica E60 UV filter in very good condition with no glass issues. Price: $40 plus shipping
Zeiss leather case for the Contax II. This is a well-used, but still fully intact leather case. (fits the Contax II, not IIa). Price: $15 plus shipping
Zeiss Albada accessory shoe finder. From about 1935. Fully working. Has 5cm and 135cm frame lines. This is sort of a bright line finder, with somewhat dim and hazy views, but I think they are all like that (this is the only one I have experience with). Of special interest to Zeiss Contax system adherents. Price: $60 plus shipping
