What's a "junk "leica 1200 rangefinder worth

I was looking at a pawn shop a few days ago, and noticed a Leica rangefinder in the "junk" section. the junk just means it doesn't work right now. I didn't want to ask what was wrong, because they obviously wouldn't know. How much would you spend on the think in hopes of getting it fixed and working? I can try to get more info on the thing if needed.

Is it an LRF or a CRF? I have never seen one that didn't work.

I will check on that tonight. Probably some rich japanese golfer dropped it. I didnt see anything physically wrong with it. I've never seen one period. I was randomly looking for stuff while my wife was selling off old clothes.

If it's the older style it isn't worth anything as Leica won't fix it - just went through it with a 900.

I know a guy that sent in an old 1200 he bought 2nd hand, as stated above, they wouldn't fix it. What they did do however, is send him a certificate good for $450 towards a new 1600.

So perhaps it might be worth something if they give you the same deal.

I don't mean to be a smarta$$, but I'd go back and stick a fresh battery in it and see what happens. Ya never know , problem could be that simple and maybe pick it up dirt cheap. Wouldn't hurt to try.

The thing is about $150 US. It's not that I don't have the money, and wasn't even thinking about flipping it. If it can be repaired, i will have a really nice RF for the price of a junky one. If not, I have a $150 paperweight, or a $450 gift certificate. I will try to go by there again. Have some other stuff on the plate right now, like replacing a car.
