Alfred Eisenstaedt's Leica IIIa Rangefinder Sells for €114,000 EUR

Earlier we showed you the gold-plated Leica that sold for $683,000 at auction; now we’ve got a look

Earlier we showed you the gold-plated Leica that sold for $683,000 at auction; now we’ve got a look at a vintage Leica IIIa Rangefinder from the same auction. This beauty was one of photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt’s personal cameras – the very one that he used to capture the iconic V-J Day in Times Square photo on August 14, 1945. Eisenstaedt would continue to use the camera for another 50 years before passing away. WestLicht’s auctioneers had expected the camera to go for somewhere between €20,000 and €25,000 EUR, but the final hammer price of €114,000 EUR far exceeded that. Enjoy the photos of this storied camera above.
