This came up a few months ago. I believe the story was some of the first
bodies made at Solms  did not have "LEICA" on the front, just an enlarged

I'm sure someone will verify this.

I just trade my G2 set with 21,28,35,45,90 set for a M6 with a summilux 35
the G2 was good gear, but i hate the batterys, and some imperfections like
no spot measure, no DOF marks etc...
My M6 is n#17424..  i think it  is from 1988, but the particularity is  :
not "LEICA M6"engraved on the front
but only "M6".
I never saw it before.
Can somebody, tell me more about my M6 ?
