Hey everyone, i recently purchased a Leica II. Is there anybody that knows for sure the authenticity of this camera? Here is the serial numbers: Leica II, serial number No: 318538 with Summar 50mm lens, No: 449882

I read on some sites that copies even had copied the serial numbers to make it all even harder to know...

Any help would be awesome! Thank you so much.

To me it looks to be a fake... viewfinder window looks wrong. Top plate looks has that machined look...

There are tons of fakes coming out of Russia and Ukraine... thankfully most of them on ebay (that I've seen) are honest and will state so.

I'm no expert though...
