Leica M6 prototype parts, 1981

I have not seen a LEICA M6 Prototype copy being surfaced in the market yet. But according to Leicashop™ auction literature; seemingly there were 6 of these copies had been produced. For some strange reasons, there was no complete mob-up model in that particular auction. Instead, some parts remains of the said prototype body were being auctioned. I am not a technician and couldn't distinguished the differences among the actual production designed units and the prototype parts. But here are some of the views, probably anyone of you out there can write a short remarks to furnish this particular section.
