9 Reids???? I really can't think, off of the top my head of any museum with that many of those. Insane.
You think 9 reids is sick? The *&%$#$%@(God Bless him :angel: ) has 5 Zunows'!! For those of you that don't know what a Zunow is....Look it up!
Oh, I know. I just find the Reids more interesting on some wierd level. Nothing more or less...
9 Reids and 5(may be 6) Zunows'....NOW that's really sick!!

Folks if you are seriously into camera porn, check out THIS site, I love it. Whats more it keeps the records of the past several auctions. From this page you should see the links to these and the cuurent one on the left hand side. If on the home page for Westlich, click the coming auctions link to get here. You can see some great kit and get an idea of prices (although in Euros) This site has more browsing and more fun than a visit to TheSweetSinsofSexySally dot com or whatever.
Nearly everything on there is Leica knock-offs. Maybe the guy was running on a budget!! I see he even has a "Tower" there. That was a Sears or Wards (I forget which) brand for those a few decades ago.
Reids were a British Leica copy - supposedly developed in case the Germans closed off trading during WW II. According to a website or two I've seen, they were supposed to be pretty good cameras - but of course, not really a Leica.
The results are in.
