1923 Leica 0-Serie Nr.107

A Leica camera from 1923 was sold at auction Saturday,in Vienna, for a world record 1.32 million euros

1923 Leica 0-Serie Nr.107. This is the 7th camera of the Leica 0-series. Only approximately 25 of these cameras were produced to test the market in 1923, 2 years before the commercial introduction of the Leica A. It is the only camera known with “Germany” engraving on the top plate. The factory record indicates delivery to New York for patent applies. This means that this camera is not only one of the major existing rarities, it is also the first Leica being exported

But in my opinion to pay that amount of money on something you’ll never gone use as it was intended, but most likely put in a showcase, it’s just Stupid.
