I found this camera at the thrift store a while ago and I have been trying to figure it out, but it is just way too complicated for me. It is beautiful and I would love to know how to use it, but I have been considering selling it to someone who can make better use of it. From what I have researched I understand that it is from the 40s and is the original Leica copycat. There are a plethora of lenses and they are all in amazing leather cases. I looked it up on Ebay and they have a few going for around $500-700.
I was interested in knowing more about this camera or learning about different options for selling it. Thanks for your help!

You found this at a thrift store? Is it in working condition? If I were you I'd keep it, but that's just me, I like having cameras, it's pretty enough to sit around, even though it is dissappointing a little if you can't use it. Have you been able to try it out at all?
