Leica I Mod. A Luxus            € 100.000 *
              no. 48402, 1930, condition B+   € 200.000 – 250.000
              The elusive ‘Luxus’ Leica in 100 % original and very good
              condition. The camera with gold plated metal parts and a
              lizard-skin covered body was never restored and show the
              typical light patina. Only 95 ‘Luxus’ Leicas were produced
              from 1929 to 1931; some were later converted or upgraded —
              only a handful of cameras exist in this original condition. An
              original Luxus Leica is one of the major rarities in the Leica
              world. The offered example was delivered to New York in
              1930 as LESSALUX (Leica Luxus). See Lager I page 26 for an
              antecedent camera no.48401.
