Thanks for some very help comments. 

Bob, the camera was described to me when I got it in the 1960s from a 
photographer friend in DC who was dying and wanted to liquidate his gear 
so his wife wouldn t have to. He said he thought it was a 1936 or 1937 
model, Leica Standard. It is #296703.  There is the small O on the lens 
flange. What does that O mean?  

It still works just fine at all speeds and was obviously always carried 
in its leather case, which still looks rather good. 

Thanks for your help.

Fred Ward
