A nice Leica III with Summar lens. The camera is very clean - a little dirt and a few minor scuffs on the chrome but generally very good and very clean condition. The speeds also seem good but I can't get'T' to close and the slow speeds are also slightly longer than they should be.
The camera winds on fine etc.. It has a take up spool. The shutter curtain looks like a different material as you wind on and fire the shutter. I don't know if this means it has been replaced at some point - I'm sure someone will know. The shutter curtain looks to be a very good condition, so this wold make some sense.
Rangefinder works and seems accurate, slightly dim but more than acceptable. The lens is good but has some haze.
There's also some coating marks on rear element - I've tried to photograph them on photo 7. If you're aiming to actually use the camera then they will have no effect on finished image in my opinion!
A really nice, heavy, small, well made camera. The case is worn but good. No caps or hoods or other accessories.
