I'm surely not an M expert, but something doesn't seem right.  The
engraving on the back near the viewfinder is very poorly executed and
the top engraving seems out of proportion to the space it occupies.

My German isn't nearly good enough to understand the significance of
the engraving on the back.

What do you suppose the real story is on this item?

I didn't check the serial number but it is now a IIIf probably a black
dial.  Nice shiny new paint with nary a mark.  So, take a beat up IIIf,
the chrome off, laquer it up and try for 2500.  Nice work if you can
get it.
