When I asked if he had a leica my friend said sure. He knew I wanted borrow one.
Oddly, it works perfectly. Obviously, he is somewhat indifferent to cosmetics.

Lens is a 21/4 Super Angulon.

This Leica has 'character'!

Nice lens!

I love it! Now _THATS_ a Lieca I'd be willing to own. No worries about scratching it!

Here is your chance to paint it bright yellow like that M4 on Photo.net I like it tho, looks like its well worked in.

.......there is a little chip in the vulcanite, if you look really close you can see it .

That Vulcanite can be replaced for $25 or so. I see a little haze on the VF; a CLA would take care of it.Black paint over chrome, the chrome looks good! no big deal. One terrific wide-angle lens.You have a good friend.

I think Todd meant, there's a little chip OF vulcanite... that's the kind of camera you could leave on a park bench and come back an hour later and pick up off the grass where somebody moved it so they could sit down.. no worries about theft!

Agree, I would like to read those stories.
I would like to see some of the photos you took with it

that is one of the nicest looking leicas I have ever seen, I love the ones that have been used to hell and back

Heck, my own dinged and dented M4 looks like new compared to this one. It's really got some character. I gotta go use mine a lot more! Over the hills and far off...

Photo Arsenal has one just like it for $20,000.

Jaw dropping!

Yana what?
this camera hasn't necessary went through a lot of use.
Dry vulkanit can chip off badly on a beautifull camera. And the BP over chrome is known not to stick around too much.
My bet:
We have a cinderella here...

Beauty is only skin deep.

But ugly goes all the way to the rf patch, slow shutter speeds, baffles, flssh sync, take-up spool, self-timer mechanism, pressure plate, frame counter....

Self-made black paint M2. Here is the reason why you should spend $2500 to have an original black paint. :p

What a beauty! Just broken in, to be sure.

Looks like it would clean up really well . . . maybe could use a little help from Cameraleather.

That is a good looking Leica! Vulcanite is over rated anyway - and can be replaced with gaffers tape if needed.

If the internals are good...then who cares. The type of camera thiefs wouldn't even consider.

like Tom A said, maybe gaffers tape, cloth black or how about wood grained contact paper? Ya know, trailer trash. Diamond plate stick on foil would be a good redneck option. Last but, not least, mossy oak break up!

Everybody usually wants a mint Leica, but here, everybody wants a "whatever-is-remaining-of-this-camera-Leica".

And my friend still has it and the Super Angulon. I tried to buy it. No dice.
