Leica cameras possess a pedigree that is unmatched. So when rare specimens pop up, collectors froth at the mouth to get a chance to own one. This particular piece being auctioned off by Bonhams is quite rare indeed, with only 95 units ever made over a production run spanning just 1929 to 1930.

Get ready to open up your wallet as you’ll be expecting to pay around a million Dollars for this! The auction will start on November 22, which also includes much more affordable but still pretty expensive limited edition Leicas. Good luck!
