Leica – the MVP camera!

WestLicht Auction on December 4th, 2010 ended sucessfully!


This auction’s highlight, a rare Leica MP2 from 1958 with a start price of 80,000 EUR, was hammered for incredible 402,000 EUR (incl. premium). The buyer now posses the most expensive Leica camera ever sold!

The results for the Nikon lots are equally impressive. Two lots of this section now share the world record for the most expensive Nikon camera on earth! The Nikon S2-E, a viewfinder camera built in 1957, was hammered for 168,000 EUR (starting price: 90,000 EUR) – for the same amount a Nikon F3 NASA from 1968 found a new owner. The selling price of this camera exceeded the start price of 16,000 EUR more than ten times!

The photo auction conducted on the same day was also a great success. The highlight of the auction was a 1914 portrait of Egon Schiele by Josef Trcka which was bought by a European dealer for 43.200 EUR incl. premium. A portrait by Gustav Klimt started at 6,000 EUR and was hammered for 15,600 EUR.
