    Hi All,

    I got an email from my grandpa referencing a Leica C3. He said that my grandma got it as a surprise gift for him secondhand.

    Looking on google, I don't think it was a C3. Do you all have any idea which camera he might've been talking about?

    Maybe a IIIc? Maybe a III? Maybe an M3? The M3 looks too modern, as I think this would have been some time in the 1940s.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    From this page, it looks like he is talking about a IIIc.

    Now, to see how much they go for nowadays. A pretty penny, I bet....

    Maybe have them describe the wording on it and on the lens. That could help. Also a serial number will help.
