     Hi Carl,
      Why do you mention that the best choice is the later M4-P (158xxxx 
     and higher)?  What is wrong with the M4-P with the serial number below

its price is nearing that of a mint M6."
Your best choice is a clean, later model (#158xxx and higher) M4-P. Prices 
range from $600 (user) to $1,200 (collector). They are more sturdy than a 
M4-2, easy to repair and the viewfinder matches the M6. My M4-P , a second 
body to the M6, accompanies me with a 35 or 50 Summicron and clip-on MR 
Second bodies are great for experimenting with different films at your 
convenience. Enjoy!
