ID challenged Fed 1 '' Leica ''
I picked up a brass Leica copy in Uk , because it has the chrome shutter button in old Leica style shutter release and indents on the accessory shoe .
i assume that the rangefinder element is early Fed , but could the base of the camera be from a later version ? The base plate has Zorki S style catch ...
To my amazement and dismay , it also has real reptile skin covering - so thick that it pulled out the screws when I removed it - I don't know how the camera stayed together !
... I bought it to create an '' immersed in water for 50 years '' copy of that Leica which was shown in the forum , but the brass is so nicely aged !
no pics of the camera - lost the download cable for digibox Canon G 2 !
Leica M 8 . Leica Dig 3 and L 1 . Leica II / Leica IIIc . Mint 1952 Kiev 2 etc Taking snapshots and keeping ASdee contained .
