Hello. I've found some info on company, here it is:

Schacht -

It used to produce lens during 1959-1970.

Someone is selling lens similar to your on ebay: A.Schacht Ulm Travenar 50mm f/2.8 R (M42 mount) (item 200511064145 end time Aug 29, 2010 16:11:18 SGT)
but That's Macro lens as I think. Anyway, it looks worth spending 40$ 'cause german lenses had very high quality at that time...

You should buy it if you have M42 mount camera.
