Leica M3, Double Stroke, 1956

This camera is a 1956 Leica M3 with the original, deteriorating Vulcanite, replaced with Paradise Pink Snake Skin. It has the original Leica Meter MC and lens cap. This camera has a striking impact. I had it on a shoot in Japan and I could hardly get down the street without being questioned about it. I brought it to a camera show a couple of years ago and all the dealers wanted to buy it. It's a pretty cool camera! I just received conformation from Morgan Sparks of, this is the only one like it in the world!
