If you have $200,000 to spare, you may soon be able to buy one of two early Leica RIFLE sets that were first sold back in July 1938. The cameras will be auctioned at Leica’s 30th WestLicht camera auction on November 19th.
Manufactured by E. Leitz New York, the rifles feature a wooden stock and a long scope, perfect for shooting your subjects from afar.
Two versions will be hitting the auction block: a RITOO set comes with a 20cm Telyt lens and is expected to fetch up to $200,000. A RITEL set comes with a 40cm Telyt lens and is estimated to be worth up to $225,000. Both come with original cases.
