The Second One
One of the rarest M cameras in absolutely original and near-mint condition. Engraved on the back of the top plate with 'Bundeswehr', with matching Elmar 2.8/50mm no.2327731 correctly engraved with the letter 'Y'.
Delivered on the 28th of December 1970, the camera is also in perfect technical order with a clean finder and working shutter. Only 31 M4 cameras were finished in olive green, some are without Bundeswehr engraving, and only very, very few of these still exist in this perfect original condition! The offered example is the second camera from this very small batch (1266101-1266131) - included with it is written expertise by Ottmar Michaely.
