    Default collector interest in these?

    I've been holding onto these for quite some time, I received them
    from an uncle who was big into photography and he's left me this after
    he passed some years back. Part of a huge collection he owned.
    Anyway what I have are completely as new mint condition as they are
    unused and still in the original boxes. Complete with all documents.

    I have a Nikon F2A 25 year Anniversary Photomic model ( body only).
    Camera has 25 Anniversary plate mounted on the front right side.
    Marked on the bottom with serial number 25-XXXX. It has a white
    plastic cover where the lens mounts and a plastic piece that protects
    the bottom of the camera. Also has the original owner's manual.
    Comes in a silver box marked Limited Edition and is still enclosed
    in styrofoam in a plastic bag. Says Made In Japan on box.
    Box has a matching number written on inside flap.

    The other piece I have is a lot nicer, imho. It also is as new in
    unused and mint condition. It is a Leica M4 50 year Anniversary.
    Camera has 50 Jahre with a white crest on the front. Matching
    numbers on camera and box although camera has a different
    separate number with a letter on the back. Box has a label that
    states component part made in Germany, camera assembled in
    Canada. Has owner's manual and an envelope with a registry card
    inside with matching number. Stamped in red with the same 50
    year crest that is on the camera. Serial # 141XXXX.

    The last piece I have is a Black lens marked Summicron 1:2/50.
    Comes with a lens hood and black snap on lens cap. Encased in
    a clear plastic bubble with a screw on black bottom. Has a registry
    card with matching number and original box also with same number.
    Made in Germany. Lens is unblemished and in mint condition.

    PM me if you have any questions, thanks all !

    Hi, I think $3100 might be a bit low! Since the Leica full frame sensor digital body came out, Leica M lenses have really jumped in price. The 50mm f/2 Summicrons have been going for over 1200-1800 depending on the version. Here is a link to a very good site that might help: http://www.antiquecameras.net/50summicronmlenses.html If the lens was purchased at the same time as the camera body it might be a 3rd version. The 50th Anniversary M's were marketed in 1975. The price depends a lot on the condition, especially the body. I was a Leica dealer in Calif. for 30 years and sold these new! Please PM if you have any other questions. Maurice
