Leica III #320325 and 50mm Elmar f/3.5 #498397 1939 Wartime "Export" Set in Feet with "Germany" marked baseplate and Lens. From an Estate, I believe this pair has been together from new in 1939. A nice clean original 1939 Export Wartime set for collection or use after CLA.Leica III #320325 Export marked "Germany" on baseplate. Leica IIIa is in excellent+ cosmetic condition.
Top plate is very nice. Bottom Plate has some busy bright lines and few very light scratches. Vulcanite is cracked and has been re-glued in the past but is lifting on the rewind side.Please see detailed pictures for nice cosmetic condition. Shutter is firing on all speeds except 1/200 and 1/500. Shutter is hanging up on the top speeds. Other Speeds sound good but have not been electronically tested. I suggest a CLA / Service for shutter function and 100% accurate shutter speeds. Viewfinder has bright clear view. Rangefinder 2nd image is bright with good contrast - easy to focus. Leica III comes with Leica Film Spool. Leica 50mm Elmar f/3.5 #498397 Export marked "Germany" in Feet.
