Condition 95%. Excellent example of this ...... er, pre-war Contax 1, resplendent in red lizard skin, from Zeiss. This is a genuine Contax 1 Attrappe (shop dummy) with correct serial number: A.U.65106, indicating that it was a factory attrappe. It is in full working order ... as a dummy, meaning you can pick it up and get a feel for the size and shape of a Contax 1; obviously it doesn't work as a camera, as it has no shutter or rangefinder. It does have a lens: a collapsible 5cm F2.8 Tessar, with glass and aperture present, though the front element has cleaning marks. As to the polished chrome and red lizard skin .... God only knows when that was done, though I have to stay I rather like it.
