I know that there are a lot of Nazi fakes out there (and I'm not even including the obvious Russian fakes), but I was wondering if this camera:
Is trying to be a pretender for the unsuspecting buyer? It doesn't have the military serial number engraved on top, but the brassed area on the back is in the correct location, and it is in the right timeperiod and batch of cameras to be a Nazi camera.
I was looking for a real beater camera to do some work on, and this one looked like it had promise until I saw the brassing, because now I suspect it will end up selling fo 2x or 3x it's value...
Any thoughts on if this is an attempt to boost the price by making it similar to a military Leica?
