In case of a factory restoration/repair is surely possible : old mechanisms like double stroke and oldstyle times had probably no more spares available, and the Customer Service preferred to use new parts: years ago, when I had an issue on the VF/RF of my M2, they told me that it would had been repaired "converting" it to the M4 one.

Is it possible that the guard ring was removed, the body was converted to single stroke and the shutter speeds were changed from the old 1-2-5-10-25-50-100 sequence to the new one?


Or possibly just an old top plate (with old S/N) on a newer body?

This must be a very early M3, judging by the shape of the lugs, the screws at the the rear for fixing the top cover to the body (they were omitted later on) and the non-existent frame selector. It seems genuine to me, but it is hard to tell from the pictures alone whether this is a good buy or not.


Cheers, Andy
