An original Leica O-Series Nr.107 — 1 of 25 made — recently sold for a record $1.89-million at the Hasselblads auction. According to experts, it was “the first Leica to be exported, allegedly for a patent application inspection in New York.” Video from the auction after the break.

A wealthy collector from Asia decided that this camera was worth a lot more than its estimated price, which is between $500,000 and $650,000. The auction took just 2 minutes, and a private collector almost put down two million for this camera.
