I did not go through that test and that is why I take off the Japan Photographic Industries sticker off in most cases. Some collectors may blame me for that. So what?

I know a guy who blackened the Leica designation on his camera. Maybe there will be indefinite marks by that. He did it for the moment, not with sale in mind. Maybe he does not even want to sell it ever. After his death maybe a buyer might grumble. So what?
