that's totally a fair opinion, no offense taken.

I know James Lager has done extensive research on the cameras, and I've also confirmed it with Erwin Puts and Lars Netopil.

I would really love to see a photo of a camera, as you mentioned, with these inscriptions too!

Glaser. try to take a close look at the photo I linked to. The one with the navy KB with 2 Leica´s.

The one to the left has dark patches where the M marking and the eagle is. I believe a detailed version of that photo will show the markings clearly enough to disperse any doubt.
I found it at the Bundesarchiv, but they do not offer a high resolution online. Unless you pay for it.

The case for the one to the right looks pretty normal to me. I do not recall ever having held a Leica with such rings. And I have had some leica´s in my hands. But then again, pure chance perhaps.
Eigentum Leica´s from Luftwaffe are pretty well known. It is when a Leica has a Luftwaffe eagle one should be wary.

Thx for posting the link to the picture, but for me there is absolutely nothing to see that could be usefull as evidence because if you blow up the picture the details get sloppy. I will be of course quite difficult to find a picture of a Leica made by another photographer like the nice one of the Kriegsberichter, were coincidentally the markings are detailed and readible. Let the chase begin

Do you know what the cost might be? I am really curious to see the camera closer!

I think it was € 28.something. I can check
https://www.bild.bundesarchiv.de/dba...1II-MN-1004-17
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...dberichter.jpg
This the best image I can find. It seems the payment is only for commercial use.
To get closer, one needs to look at the original. Odd thing is, this was scanned with a lower resolution than other photo´s.
Taken in april 1940, Norway.


Glaser. I have also been playing with the photo, and you are right. Not sharp enough. But I still see darkness where the M number and the eagle should be.

Here's a better view of the glass, I have a feeling some might be interested in this. Serial number is also dated to 1939.
