Can you help ID this lens type?

Bought this lens of *bay, as it was marketed as a Pentax mount preset lens - 135mm Lenthar. The mount, however, does not look like my other K-mount lenses. One of the 3 flanges has a notch in it, and the word MIN is noted (min aperture v/s minolta...??) Here are the images, and any determination that this is not a Pentax mount requires prompt action on my part to inform the seller.

Thanks in advance...

Minolta, considering that it says "MIN" on the back? I'm just guessing here, but it's likely.

External coupling lug for the aperture and red index mark at the top when mounting. Yup, it's a Minolta mount.

That's the Minolta MD notch, all right. It was represented as Pentax? Get a refund.
