I've learned a lot about Leica cameras in the past week. I'm guessing the M3 
that I had listed was worth about $1,500 as it was. Possibly more. I have 
seen several on eBay in the $3,000 range, but they don't often sell. Serial 
numbers for the M3 started at 300,000 and went up to just over 1,100,000. 
SN's above 1,000,000 are worth more (maybe $3k ballpark) than your typical 
early camera, supposedly because they were assembled by the most experienced 
assemblers and had the latest features. Slightly earlier cameras that are 
essentially identical are worth somewhat less (maybe $1500). Cameras above 
1,100,000 are premium cameras that might be worth ballpark $5k although they 
are functionally identical. And then there were 143 cameras of the late type 
that had black-painted bodies, and these are worth like $6k. Go figure...
