Anyone know vintage Kodak rangefinders?

I know theres a lot of photographers on here. Anyone know much about the Retina series? I have a IIc that is in decent condition but has a light leak. Shops around here have both told me yes, fix it, its a great camera, and no, don't fix it, its not a Leica. Estimates are around $80-120. Any thoughts?

Its a Retina Ia actually, now that I look at it, with a Synchro-Compur lense. I'm told its from the early 50's but not really 100% sure on production dates. Bellows look to be excellent. Seems to be a very solidly built little camera.

It is a great little camera, and a nice lens, but not worth $100 in excellent condition.

Sweet, kinda what I thought. Looks like IIa's are the desireable ones and cheap enough on eBay... might just pick one up.
