The Leica IIIb by Leitz is an upgrade of the Leica IIIa. It mainly differs by the position of the viewfinder and rangefinder eyepiece, which are separated by a few millimetres on the IIIa and are closer together on the IIIb. It was the first Leica to have the combined viewfinder/rangefinder eyepiece. The diopter correction lever for the rangefinder was moved to a different location under the rewind knob. The IIIb was made from 1938 to 1941 and some have military engravings. Serial number range from 240,001 to 368,563.
