conversion with sync, otherwise looks the same, even the screw mentioned

Thanks for the findings !  As I said, the screw on the top didn't look at all new to me... but had not evidence (do not pretend to be an expert on conversions 😉) ; Time ago, in this section, a detailed pricelist of all the conversions available in the '50s was published : would be useful to look at it to check if the depicted item can result from one of those options... If I remember right, sync could be provided only for cameras above a certain s/n (but I can be wrong) which could explain the lack of sync in this item.... but I tend to keep my idea that is a 3rd party job (which, of course can be finely made, anyway...  Leica repairers were often very skilled and well equipped concerns)

Your 126444 might have come out of the factory the same day as my 126153.

My other Barnack, a III from 1936 converted in factory to a IIIf. Paired with a W-Nikkor 35mm f2.5. Love the design of this lens, fits perfectly on the III. Any fans out there?

It’s just a normal iiif BD, but it’s my favourite Leica (ahead of an MP, M3 and M6TTL). Perfect size and weight and balance. I prefer using the external viewfinder on this to the 50mm viewfinder in the M3 (but I shoot a lot of 90mm and nothing beats the M3 for that). MP and M6 are for wides. I sometimes hanker after a iiig or iid in black but really I would just end up splitting the use between them.

My mother bought this IIIg new at the Misawa Air Base Exchange (Japan) in 1957 with the collapsible Summicron I, and has since bequeathed it to me. It still gets the job done!
