Early Leica Standard. This one has strap lugs on the side which is not very common. Collapsible Elmar 50 f3.5 lens was what most of these came through with. The early "Barnack" cameras as they are called, are very jewel like, small and heavy in the hand, quite wonderful. They often are still working fine which is a testament to the fine German workmanship. If not they can usually be sent out and repaired. This model was made in 1931, right before the Leica started making the first rangefinder cameras. I have several different early Leicas from 1929-1932 so not sure if I have shot a roll through this one yet or not but they typically yield very nice images. You just have to use them with care and make sure to load the film correctly which takes some study and practice. Using them today is to make such a cool connection to photographic history.
