Lug Nuts, As I remember it, from my association with the late British collector E. John Newton, Leica M4s, and probably earlier cameras left the factory with their boxes wrapped in brown paper(possibly with some sort of Leica or E. Leitz GMBH logo) and sealed with a paper tape that definitely had E. Leitz GMBH logs printed on it. It was later decided not to shrink wrap things because most people would pay Leica prices with out seeing the product first. Hope this further confused the issue. Happy Snaps, Sal DiMarco, Jr.
