    This Leica III rangefinder camera is pre WWII between 1934 - 1935, Nr. 174168. Black paint. All in excellent conditions. The case has Leica logo and original. The Lens Summar 5cm f2 has clean and clear. The item been did CLA. Overall functions works very well. All shutter speed tested, even slow speed as well. The body cover is brand new. It is in high value for collecting. What great Germany product, almost a century over, just doing entire maintenance, it is working like initial conditions! The body paint loss is age mark and original. Please see the pictures.

    If you would like a recommendation for an excellent piece of free software that provides excellent re-sizing tools, along with low overhead and a lot of other functionality, I can heartily recommend FastStone Image Viewer. It is a free download, works well and only asks for a donation infrequently.
    I am a happy user - no other connection.
    By the way, the target size for Photrio downloads is 800 pixels on the longest side.

    Technicality, but Hitler was appointed chancellor in 1933. WW-II is generally said to have begun with the invasion of Poland in September, 1939.

    So unless I'm missing something, if made in 1934, this appears to be pre WW-II

    The Leica Magazine (published in USA) that I own for September 1939 noted that they were suspending publication until further notice because of the conflict in Europe so Leica must have considered the war to have started in September 1939. E.Leitz, New York resumed publication in (I think) 1947. The war in Europe ended in the Spring of 1945. The war between USA and Japan lasted until the bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. I developed my first role of film in 1940 and yes, I do remember most of this period but if you don't believe the dates, ask Wikipedia. Your camera looks as if it might be an early III (1934-35).....Regards!
