Acquired Leica cameras from the Estate of Alfred Eisenstaedt. Leica M3-1000001 was presented as a chrome camera to Alfred Eisenstaedt in 1960. In 1989, Leica Camera Company equipped the camera with new gold plated parts, honoring Eisenstaedts lifelong contribution to photojournalism. The chrome parts of the 1960 presentation camera were not destroyed, but set back together as a dummy model and given back to Eisenstaedt together with the gold camera - LARS NETOPIL -
