Leica MD Gray Hammertone *
Leitz Wetzlar production records list 10 Leica MD bodies in special gray finish shipped to Leitz Canada in October 1964. Also, Visoflex III housings in a similar finish were supplied. Due to a later delivery, all of the Visoflex housings differ somehow in their finish from the MD camera body.
The camera offered here is in beautiful, almost mint condition and comes from the official batch with serial numbers 1102501-1102510. Lager, “An Illustrated History” I, pictures the subsequent camera no. 1102506 and also no.1102509 on page 221. Included is a matching Visoflex III in gray hammertone finish, with a special cutout in the front flange.
This is an extremely rare outfit; a must in any serious Leica collector´s portfolio.
And without any doubts one of the most beautiful M camera´s Leica ever made.
