I am having difficulty identifying this Leica. Here are its main features: 1. It is a Leica IIIa and has the 1/1000 shutter, even though the serial number, 236864, indicates a Leica III batch from 1937. 2. Has flash sync and sync ring under Shutter Speed Dial. 3. "DBP" indicating a post-war camera. The camera lacks the "Made in Monte en Sarre" stamp on the topplate, but has all the other signs of being one of these cameras. There is no doubt that this is a Leica and not some sort of replica. It came from the estate of a serious collector and professional photographer. For readers who do not know what I am referring to, I copied this from the Net: In the period 1949-1951 about 500 Leica IIIa cameras were assembled at St. Ingbert in french occupied zone of germany by the Saroptico company. These cameras carried the engraving "Monte en Sarre" (assembled in Sarre) beneath the word "Germany" on the top-plate. In this way they avoided the high tariff imposed on foreign cameras imported into France. They were all sold in France or the French colonies. Later examples had a film speed reminder in the wind-on knob as introduced on the Leica IIIf in 1950. Some also have IIIf-type synchronization, although this may have been fitted later as a conversion. Click on picture for larger image. I have some more images posted HERE. I would appreciate any opinions on this. Thank you, Charles.
