Are they so expensive even with the front element being so baddly damaged? It looks like it is not just dirt on it.

Yes, production numbers were low. This has a long way to go.

There is some nice stuff up for sale, thankfully I have given up buying!

There are 160+ lots of Leica/Leitz this seller has up, all from one estate. I wonder what they paid for it all.

It ended up selling for $1237! Wow. Not too bad for an old Summar with issues.

I remember in the early 1970s a well used collapsible Summar would set you back 18 dollars from Wall Street Cameras.

That is not bad for a rigid Summar. Now try and find a price for a 'Tropen' Summar...

It's a rigid summar - rare is expensive in the Leica world. Hence the price differential between rigid and collapsible ltm summicrons
