Just to give you an idea how crazy the world of Leica collecting can be, the hammer price on this baby at the Westlicht auctions is expected to be 150,000 to 180,000 euros. It's a just-discovered pristine example of a very rare black MP2 with experimental motor drive, from the late 1950s. One of only six made.
I'll bet with a good hard year's shooting you could scrub a good €50k off the thing!
