Duane -You have hit the nail right on the head.  Isaac Meizenberg from
 Continental Camera, Skokie, IL doe a fime job of black painting & his
 specialty is the gold plated ones since Alfredo from New Orleans has
 retired.  There is a beautiful black paint IIIg with black Leicavit for sale
 at auction right now, with an opening of $2500 & will probably be either
 not sold or bring in $4000. Of course it comes with the disclaimer that
 it is not an original paint job.  Both Isaac & Greg Metzcar do fine work.

Anyhow,  judging from his accent and appearance I would guess he is a 
 Jewish Russian immigrant.  But I never dealt with him or really talked 
 with him much other than to ask to see some later m lenses.  I have 
 only been to one show in Chicago in the last 5 years and then I was 
 really too busy looking for specific non-Leica  items so I don't 
 remember positively if he was still there or not.
