My black & nickel Leica II from 1932. I bought it coupled with its Leitz Summar from 1933:






And I've just bought a black VIDOM finder (and hope to find a nice 90 or 135mm lenses, black of course).

Well-used and factory-upgraded Leica IIIc from late 1945, now with IIIf specs and ditto body shell.
Got it from Al a few months ago. It's as smooth as a new camera, remarkable. I had new leather sent out by Hugostudio.com.
The lens is the 1990s version of the Jupiter-8, high gloss black with ivory engravings and 'Made in USSR' on its barrel. Nothing wrong with those lenses, they were submitted to decent quality control before export.

New in the house Leica II from 1938. Clean as a whistle, and Ulrich Fuchs did a very nice CLA.

Thanks Erik
I don't know, it has been re-covered, maybe when it was CLA. I will ask the guy I got it from.

Yes, that is a Tower 45 with what is, I assume, the original Nikkor 5cm f2 lens. I had Youxin Ye CLA it and it is a very precise feeling machine.

More details at:
https://www.cameraquest.com/nicca.htm

They pop up on ebay every once in awhile (nice kit on there right now) but are typically pretty expensive. I lucked out on mine and got it for about the cost of the lens.

The other is a Leotax TV2. Not quite as precise feeling as the Tower (when advancing film) and it has a bigger finder with framelines, self timer but lacks the 1/1000 shutter speed or the rear film loading.

Bought this in good condition, but decided to remove the leather anyway. Pending the new coat, it looks rather industrial!

Hugostudio.com has a gray replacement leather. Might look really good on a Barnack.

The front element has haze, but it adds to the charm and I will leave it.

So I got a later camera, a beatiful black paint 1937 Leica III and a good coated Elmar from 1951. The camera has been lubricated, but the RF is very dim and the spacing or the shutter or both are a problem and it will need a service.

Several months ago I was out carrying the Monochrom when I came upon a very young man with a screwdriver, lining up an old IIIc on a distant city building. We talked briefly, but he seemed not to have much time for an older man with a digital Leica.

Three months ago I went to the twice-yearly Australian Photographic Collectors' Society meeting at the Box Hill Townhall. On a table was a perfect looking IIIf with an indifferent Elmar. I asked the history of the camera only to be directed to the young man I had met near my house months earlier. He had serviced this camera, cleaning the rangefinder in particular and recovering it. He works for a camera store and picked up his skills on his own.

I bought the camera but not the lens. The camera is perfect. Probably has had less than a hundred rolls through it. It is currently my go to camera. I've mostly run Ektar through it.

My only Leica, a little Leica II from first 1932 batch, the 208th camera made. The failing vulcanite was replaced with genuine Stingray leather. Nikkor 35mm 2.5 and Minifinder.

That's a beauty johann, I consider a ii or early iii black paint with a small 35 or 28 to be the perfect carry around camera & those mini 28/35 voigtlander finders do just fit the camera.
