Yeah, 18,000 what? Dinar? Rubles? Turkish lira?

Where are you located? What continent? What country? What city?

According to this Wiki devoted to the M2 Leica, there were 200 M2 cameras made in 1957, and then the following year in 1958, there were 2,000 black finished M2 models made, plus another 2,000 M2 variants with the smaller window, and also an additional 2,500 chrome finish M2 Leicas were made in 1958. So...the 1958 production was 6,500 M2 models in total, with counts of 2,000, 2000, and 2,500.

Between 1957 and 1970 there were a total of 93,000 M2's manufactured. M2 - Leica Wiki (English)

According to this same Wiki, the "on the street" value of an average M2 in 2015 is..... On the street - €EU 850 in 2015

Unless this camera was owned by a celebrity, or has rock-solid provenance that ties it to something historical, the price of $18,000 US dollars for this common camera seems unrealistic to me. Unless this was,say, Dwight Eisenhower's camera, or George Patton's camera, or Elvis's camera, then it's probably not going to bring a large sum, even in great condition.

18000 what ? I can get a good one for £500
Not sure how much £500 is but nobody's making you buy it you don't have to be mean
Nobody is "being mean" to you. If you took the time to read the rules of the buy and sell forum, you would see that you have not followed the rules. Please provide a photo of the actual item you have for sale, (not a stock photo) and the price, as stated in the currency of your country. You can use the standard symbol of your country's currency. To find out how much the British Pound is worth in your country's currency, there are currency converters available online.

gsgary is a Leica aficionado, and knows the current value of Leica cameras.

According to your little chart, there were 500 made. Not that it would make it anywhere NEAR what you're asking.
