Leica M-6 Titanium Classic #1992299 original box, IB, purchased

      Leica USA order form; unused, no film ever through camera;
      the new Titanium M-6 run is the TTL model, there will be those
      who neither need nor want flash capability and will prefer the 
      more compact Classic                                              LN 

135/2.8 Elmarit-M #2656087 (11829) original box and registration
      card; for some reason, this lens has lost its original high regard. 
      Here's what Geoffrey Crawley, Editor-in-chief of the British 
      Journal of Photography, wrote of this design in 1968: "Excellent 
      image quality is provided across the frame at full aperture, with 
      very fine detail crisply rendered. At f/4 microscopic detail covers 
      the frame, with some slight improvement in microcontrast at f/5.6
      ……this lens is a highly corrected medium high contrast type
      capable of superb image quality, and not surpassed in the writer's 
      testing at its specification." It has not become a less-than-superb
      lens in the last 33 years. Here's one that's like new    LN  $750.00
