This fantastic piece of optical history comes in near collectors condition. The black laquere looks good and shows only minor wear. The aperture is complete and mooves smoothly forth and back. The glass is in a very good condition, only light cleaning marks can be seen. There is no fungus, haze or any chips there. The image on the groundglass is outstanding.
The lens comes with a fitting flange, leather lenscap and the original box!
