VTG Olympus 35 LC Camera Leather Case Made in Japan 1969 Lens Zuiko 42mm f1.7

Up for auction is a vintage Olympus 35 LC Camera. My uncle bought this for my father when he was overseas in the Vietnam War. I am not sure if my father ever used this camera. It looks to me like it is brand new inside and out. The leather case does have some wear on the edges but could be from us moving quite a few times before my Dad passed away. The sticker on top says "JCII 69 Passed JMDC" and the serial number "102279". All the parts seem to be working on this camera. I do not have any 35 mm film to try it out though. I did find out some information online about the camera:
