This extremely rare and desirable Leica I(b) Compur black paint rangefinder camera body is in excellent condition cosmetically, mechanically and optically. Serial #34716. This is the extremely rare Leica Compur camera outfit. The only camera Leica ever produced with a between the lens shutter. Featured a built in Leica Elmar 50mm f3.5 lens with a FD Compur lens shutter. Made in 1930. These cameras are extremely rare with only 1710 examples ever made. Early black paint finish camera with the nickel finish. Modeled after the Leica I (Model A) with the 'hockey stick' style focus lock on the body and built in 50mm f3.5 Elmar lens. 

This is a beautiful example with its original patina. Minimal brassing on the black paint finish. Lens glass is clean with only some minor marks on the front element. Marks on the glass is typical for these very early non coated lenses. Shutter is working perfectly. In excellent condition overall.

What makes this particular example that much more desirable is the engraving on the back of the top plate. Has an inscription on back of the top plate "Leitz-Eigentum 1/2" (English translates to "Property of Leitz"). This was an internal use only example and was never sold to the public. Very few examples feature this example. We have sold several other examples of Leitz-Eigentum pieces in the past and they typically sell for three to four times the regular value of the piece. An outfit like this should be valued at a conservative $12,000 - $14,000.
