In support of this request a small series of 100 lenses was made. This batch has listed with the serial numbers 1884001 to 1884100 and is in the Leitz documentation called Elmar 4/135 in black. The ring with the serial number is also engraved with ELMAR. Following the approval of the patent in 1965 the serial production started with the number 2046001, but the lens was called TELE-ELMAR. The pre-series lenses are hard to find and highly sought after by collectors.
The copy presented here with serial number 1884002 is the second of this rare pre-production series and thus of particular interest. The corresponding digits of the serial number are also listed in the tube.
No scratches, fungus or separation. The barrel shows signs of use, but not serious. No dents or impact damage.
