17. I Mod. A Elmar 'Luxus'

extremely rare early Leica I with black reptile leather (lizard) covering, though the camera is not listed as a special model in the Leica delivery books, many cameras with close serial numbers are listed as 'Luxus' Leicas (e.g. nos. 34803-34818), also the lizard covering is very similar to the other known examples (verified by Ottmar Michaely) - the camera was recently discovered in a garage sale !
