Yamato Pax M3

The Pax M3 was a continuation of the Pax M series, with the addtition of a lever wind advance and a restyled top plate making it look a bit less like a screw mount Leica. The fixed lens 45/2.8 Luminor (or Lycon) is prone to failure of the lubricant, and is most often found where the focus has frozen.

But where else can you get an M3 for under a $100 that isn't for parts?
