SOLD Leica M3 SS, great user, CLA'd
Very nice M3 single stroke, ca. 1960, cla'd and re-covered this past spring by Youxin Ye. Everything works perfectly--a very smooth camera. No dings or dents that I could find--just some normal wear marks or light scratches. Please note that the finder eyepiece has an unusual black color. The metal kept scratching my glasses, so I tried a suggestion I found on one of the forums and applied some liquid electrical tape, which eliminated the problem. I'm not sure how difficult it is to remove--I haven't tried. Also--the soft release does not come with the camera; I forgot to remove it before taking pictures. The strap and body cap are included.
Price is $850 plus shipping and, if buyer wants it, PayPal. I'm fairly new to this this forum, bought I've bought and sold quite a bit on LFF, Rangefinder Forum and eBay (username peterlat). I'd like to keep this as a U.S. sale, at least for now. Insured shipping in the U.S. is $20. PayPal's ok if buyer pays the 3% or uses the free 'gift' option. I'd consider a trade or cash-trade deal for any of the following: Fuji GSW690, Bessa R2M or R2A, Mamiya 7II body, or as a more remote possibility a 40mm Voigtlander lens for M-mount or Nikon SLR mount.
