Your IIIf was made about 1953.

The extension tubes are for a device which you don't illustrate: either 
a mirror housing or a Focaslide. 

The NOOKY is a close-up device for the 50mm Elmar.  The Nooky is 
threaded on the camera, and the Elmar is attached to the Nooky by the 
bayonet lugs on the Elmar's collapsible lens tube.  The lens is focused 
in the usual way.  The NOOKY compensates for the close distance.

Spend an extra $10 and get  the Leica Manual from the 50s on EBay.  Good 
luck! Marshall
