Does anyone know the serial nos of the Black Paint Leicaflex Standards.

Any idea about the cost of one in reasonably good condition ?

Kind Regards,

Tony Salce

Sorry Tony,

There is no definitive information on black paint serial numbers for the Leicaflex (1) camera. The best I can do is quote J. Lager who says that the black paint finish usually occurs in two distinct groupings. The first with a pie shaped frame counter and in the 1084001 area. The second with the round shaped frame counter and in the 1168001. Pie shape counter cameras are much rarer.

Value is difficult to assess and depends mostly on condition. Remember there is just not the same demand for reflex cameras as there is for the rangefinders. If it is in mint condition with all boxes and papers then you would create some excitment.
