adrian bastin Posted January 10, 2007 Share Posted January 10, 2007 This 1933 Leica II is of the early type with large speed dial and rounded housing, beneath. I have seen only one other like it in chrome and that had a 108*** serial No, also. Is anyone here familiar with these ? I'm not interested in it's monetary value - just it's curiosity value. It's rather lovely. Being mechanically simple I can see how it was an ideal camera for Wilfred Thesiger to take into the Empty Quarter and the marshes of Iraq. I believe he took tens of thousands of pictures with a Leica II before changing it (and his rifle) for a Leicaflex. Will be glad of anyone's observations, etc. Thank you.
