Yeah....mixed feelings on this one. On one hand I love the look of the camera rubbed through to the brass. On the other hand it makes me twitch...because as much as this camera was 'well used' it probably was not really looked after either. I have cameras where I have literally taken everywhere and used everywhere and still looked close to new years later...but I was careful with them and used a bag.
To each their own....a new M9 or a brassed up M9 both look beautiful to me!
