VOOMP II Pioneer, 1934

Very rare beautifully made Russian Leica II copy by VOOMP (Union of Optico Mechanical Factories). The camera was designed by Mr. Muratov in 1933 and only very few of them survived. With nickel VOOMP Experimental Factory 3.5/50mm no.572, a Tessar copy in 40mm thread mount. Original lens cap engraved 'Pioneer'. The very early camera (there are only three lower serial numbers known) is in beautiful original condition and fully functional.
