$1600 German Lens?

Hello all,

So I frequently search Craigslist for Pentax stuff here around Sacramento (rarely to find what I want). And I stumbled on this, can anyone please tell me what/why this lens is special and why is it worth so darn much?

Noflexar (Germany) 35mm lens, f/3.5

Is it just because it's so old??

Maybe it's rare, but I don't see why anyone would have any bigger sort of desire for something like this. It's just a slow 35mm macro with internal bellows - maybe that's the "big" thing about it?

It can't be much of a macro if it can only focus to 0.2m, that's for sure.
