Leica Model C
Prijs excl. BTW: Call for Pricing
This model “C” Leica has the distinction of being the very first Leica camera to permit interchange ability of lenses. Lenses are mounted to the camera body via the well-known 39mm diameter by 1mm pitch threaded flange. This 39 x 1 specification is referred to historically as the “Leica thread”. Factory serial number records suggest the non-standardized Model C was introduced at No.37280 (in 1930) and terminated at No.55401 (in 1931). Since there now was the possibility to have multiple lenses used on a camera, “sets” were created and such a set is offered here. The body itself carries the serial number : 53043 and the 3 Hektor lenses (35mm/3,5 a 5cm/2,5 and a 135mm/4,5) ALL carry the serial number : 043. It is very seldom that a complete set like this survived and it actually might be the only one still existing in the world !!!
