A gold-plated ‘Luxus’ Leica camera from 1931 with lizard leather covering and two lenses was auctioned for the crazy amount of $683.000 at an auction house in Vienna, Austria. Included were also rare photos snapped by the camera like the iconic shot of an American sailor kissing a nurse the day World War II ended. The camera formerly belonged to the well-known German producer of sparkling wine Karl Henkell. Also other models by the famed German camera company Leica were sold for far higher prices than expected.
