Haven't found a present yet?
Leica photographers and collectors are bound to find something of interest at the next Stan Tamarkin auction on December 8, where rare cameras and lenses, as well as unusual Leica accessories, will be sold to the highest bidder.
Here are three potential Christmas gifts:
Sabre Gun Stock (Nr. 311)
Photographers normally love the discreetness of a Leica camera, but that's not always the case. On sale is this camera with a double wire release, a Leica standard Nr. 329290, a 400 mm Telyt f 5 Nr. 1645052 and a Visoflex I. Offers start at 4,500 US dollars. Our tip: not recommended for reportage in conflict areas.
Lajka M4 KE-7A (Nr. 313)
At a first glance it looks like just any other Leica, but that's a big mistake. The keen observer giving it a closer look will notice there's something not quite right with the engraving. Can you see the mistake?
The Leica M4 KE-7A Nr. 1294974 comes with a 50mm Elcan f 2 Nr. 276-0465. Starting price: 20,000 US dollars.
Leica M6 .72 Titanium Nr. 1914027 (Nr. 293)
Last but not least, the perfect Christmas gift: a brand new Leica M6 Titanium with guarantee. Original packaging and still sealed. All it needs is a ribbon and it's ready to put under the tree! Starting price: 1,750 US dollars.
