KARDON, Signal Corps Camera, Military Model, Rare
This Leica clone was manufactured during WWII in the United States as imports from Germany were halted and industrial facilities bellonging to germany companies, shut down or self-sabotaged to avoid reposession. This model was imagined by a Peter Kardon, as a substitute for the Leica 111a. This rare camera has the serial number 1696. It is equiped with a Kodak lens, the Ektar 47mm f/2. Missing the top shutter ring. Works perfectly. No haze, fungus or scratches on the lens.
