For $45,000 This Unopened Box With a Rare Leica Camera is Yours

You’ve all known that Leica cameras are pretty expensive, but according to the seller of this rare leica found by Boing Boing, you don’t know how expensive. This story’s lead image is of an unopened box and an X-ray of the Leica camera inside it. This camera isn’t just any Leica though, it’s of a rare Leica KE-7A which is kind of like a super toughened Leica M4 designed for use by the US Military.

There are no details as to who owned this camera or how the seller even got a hold of it, but it’s quite a fascinating story to be able to know that something like this still exists and that you (if you’ve got the dough) can be the first one to open it.


The box contains:

– Leica KE-7A
– Leica 50mm f2 Elcan lens (serial number 276-0136)
– Lens hood and cap
– Case
– Box
– Strap and cable release
– Manual

Got the cash? You should make a bid…
