Leica M2 black paint First Batch Button Rewind set
A sought-after first version black paint M2, showing all matching features, like the button rewind, all-black base plate, no self-timer etc. In amazing, near-mint condition, with only minimal patina and untouched vulcanite, still L-sealed!
Included is a very early black paint / brass mount Summicron 2/5cm no.1474838 (cond. B/A and very good optics, black paint lens cap), early English instructions and an unnumbered box.
The camera was delivered to Manca, New York on 15.12.1959. An entry in Leitz Archive reveals a matching note 'Lackausführung-schwarz'.
It is for sure one of the most beautiful examples of the early black paint M2 we have seen!
