Why you need to know your Leica camera serial numbers

Your Leica camera serial number is like the birth certificate of your camera. You can immediately know what year it was made in and also spot any issues if need be. If someone is trying to sell you an M6 and you see in the Leica camera list database that it’s supposed to be an M4, you know there’s a problem. If you are a collector, some serial numbers due to provenance and history are rarer than others.

Plus, if need be you can report the serial number as stolen and if it ever pops up it may fin it’s way back to you. You can also search the Leica serial number lookup tool.
