Wow! The condition of the set and accessories is superb. Thank you for sharing these; it makes my day!

Best regards


PS: What is the history behind the black nose VIOOH? I believe it had a short production run, can anyone help?

This is the very first issue black VIOOH, the second black one have a collar in between the cone and the cylinder

Thank you all for your kind comments.

I will follow posting with the chronology of the Leica evolution.
