1950 Leica IIIc Rangefinder Film Camera Leitz Elmar 3.5 5cm Parts or Repair Shark Skin

Just picked this up its a Leica IIIc from 1950 serial number #496946, with Elmar Lens 5cm F 3.5 and bottom half of case.

Condition: For parts or repair, see photos lens ring bent from being dinged, aperture still turns, lens collapses into body up to the bent ring, focus is smooth, rangefinder is clear, viewfinder is clear, shutter speeds work down to 1/4 of a second that speed and slower stay open. Not too many dings or scratches but has little corrosion dots in the silver probably from being kept in a damp case. Botton half of leather case threads are breaking but holds camera. Includes original lens cap and take up spool.

You could probably have a lot of fun with this camera just the way it is or send it in and have in CLA'd and it would probably work for another 70 years, I would think you would be able to find that front lens ring for the Elmar and it should be relatively easy to replace, although I am not a Leica repairman.

Sold as pictured and described all sales final. Send email for complete set of photos.
