Default FSEOO with black screw

Ad
Recently I got a private message from a collector in Netherland, as I do not found any answer to give to him I submit here his message and pictures :
"Hello,
Recently I bought some Leica A36 filters.
One of them is an unused FSEOO with a black screw.
The seller told me that he has bought the filter from a Swedish men who had bought many Leica parts from the Swedish army.
I have never seen an A36 filter with a black screw, so I think that this filter was intended to use with the Leica IIIF Black Edition from the Swedish army.
Can you tell me if I am right or not, is it a very special filter?
Regards,
Kobus van Leer"
Hoping that Gunnar or Lars can makes some report about

The first thing I notice, the box can not fit. it lacks the GmbH and the name should be written out "Ernst Leitz" and the typeface is different.

Regards,
Jan

Leitz A36 Filter-1023743.jpg

That should be the correct box.

Hi Jan,
I cannot comment on the black screw but these boxes were manufactured by Leitz, I do have several of them.
Maybe the inscription varied over the time.
Kind regards, Michael
PS: maybe boxes only produced for export purposes?

The early boxes were with "E.Leitz Wetzlar Germany" inscribed. The later with "Ernst Leitz Wetzlar GmbH Germany". The Swedish Military IIIF is from 1956. Therefore, the box also have the new label, such as the camera and the filter.

regards,
Jan

But lets talk about the filter...

for me the paint looks different than usual at the time. He is very dull. That is my impression.

Well, JC link at least has clarified that black screw filter of the FSEOO breed DID exist... the impressive picture from Gunnar clearly shows some with the black screw (and , worth noting is a set of filters formerly of the Swedish Army...)

I am the owner of the FSEOO with the black screw.

It's my first post at this forum and had to find out how to post a picture, that took some time
Here are two pictures the filter with the black screw and three others and there is no difference in the color.

Default AW: FSEOO with black screw

Welcome to the forum!
I would now not make the party pooper, but I have seen so many "black paint" parts that just do not fit, so I have a certain amount of skepticism...sorry for it...
What would interest me now, what is on the box ... only "Leica", or that what was written above ... what I have noticed, in the black screws on the boxes is only "Leica" in cursive, except for your photo, JC show us..

regards,
Jan

..Thanks JC ... I thought of the boxes of the other filters. That would be interesting to see how the boxes are labeled.
