14. Leica I Mod. C Standard 'Calfskin' *

Very rare and absolutely original Leica Model C with calfskin body covering. According to Hahne, only 180 examples of the calfskin Leicas have been produced in 1930/31. Many of these have been later replaced during restoration by Leitz with regular Vulkanite, when the genuine leather was worn off, the number of original calfskin Leicas still in existence today is very low.

The offered camera no.67074 is listed in Hahne list as a calfskin Leica and it has been delivered to Vienna on 20.10.1931 under the right code name LEANEKALB . It is in excellent, original condition, with 11'o clock nickel Elmar and lens cap.
