Field Camera "Leitz (4,5 x 6 cm) No. 7", c. 1910 This camera was obviously a breadboard model, only one other camera is known from the collection of Prof. Steinert at the Folkwang-Museum in Essen, small pocket camera from walnut wood, brass fittings, brass lens by Leitz: "Summar 4,5/80 mm" with engraving "Ernst Leitz", iris stop, size of the camera (closed): width 86 mm, height 75 mm, depth 35 mm (sizes without lens), water level, label on rear: "Leica-Belichtung" and bakelite plate with engraving "7". Sensational find for all Leitz collectors and specialists. - No more known worldwide!

The value of these pieces is difficult to define as there are only two worldwide.

Yeah, it could be hard to set a price for this one. Breker was trying to sell this camera for several years. In 2008, start price was $4650. Not sold. In 2006 the starting price was $4700. I'd think this kind of rarity should go off the lot in seconds...
