Dear Sirs,

I am new in the list and I am entering because I found at my
father-in-law's house that I believe to be carefully a treasure Leica
Screw kept for more than 30 years. I am not expert of equipments Leica
(I am amateur photographer that uses Nikon and Canon) but I am admiring
of the quality and beauty Leica.
The items were bought in Rio de Janeiro and S=E3o Paulo in the decades of
50 and 60.
The found equipments are the following ones:
LEICA IIIf (dismounted in a plastic box)
ELMAR 1:2.8 / 50 mm serial 1638381 - EXE+
SUMMARON 1:3.5 / 35mm serial 1106561 EXE+
ELMAR 1:4 / 90mm 8308971 EXE+
TUBE OF EXTENSION FOR MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY with paralax and rangefinder
adjust in the original box. EXE+
LEICAVIT rapid winder in the original box with pamphlet of instructions
(Working perfectly - only EXE - it Lost a little of the chromium of the
lever and my father-in-law (oh no!) painted of black)
SELF-TIMER LEITZ with original box. (A beauty! Like MINT!)
Auxiliary Viewfinder for 50mm (Like New!)
Auxiliary Viewfinder for 35mm (Like New!)
Universal Viewfinder (EXE)
four filters - clear yellows, yellow darkness, orange and blue (All Like
Lens hood for 35mm or 90mm (CLOSE TO MINT)
Metal front and back protector for the 3 lenses (CLOSE TO MINT)

All these items are now with a specialist leica for revision, cleaning
and adjustment. The technician asked 20 days to revise the whole
material. He ask 6 months to set up the camera!!

I am interested in selling the products. How can I know the value of
market of those items? Which the best way of you sell them for the
internet? Ebay?

I am here in Brazil and the market Leica it is very small. I am
interested in selling for international collectors for Internert.

I thank the attention.
