Leica Cameras, Leitz and Zeiss Lenses, etc.

I’m currently seeking offers or advice on how to value several vintage cameras, mostly Leicas, as well as lenses and accessories. This collection also includes movie and portrait cameras. Most are from the 1950s and 1960s and some may go back to the 1940s. Full set includes an assortment of lens filters and adapters not shown here. These were handed down from my father and grandfather.

My grandfather was a veteran of World War I, so it’s possible some of these such as the Verascope stereo camera are older than I realize.

If interested, contact david@carrcommunications.com.
