Can someone identify this pentax 50mm lens please?

This lens doesn't look like the typical 50mm lens that are usually seen in pentax k1000 cameras. Notice the white little thing is not there. Also notice the labeling around the outer ring. Can someone tell me more about this? Is this authentic pentax?

Looks like there's a UV filter on there- apart from that, a run of the mill M50mm F2, as linked to above.

It also has a Pentax UV filter on it. You can twist it off - that is the filter with the writing on the edge...

It's just not on there, but you can see the spot for it if you look close. Above the aperture ring, to the right of the 22 on the aperture focus guide, pretty much directly down from the S in SMC on the filter ring.

The little white thingy? It is just glued on, they can get knocked off on occasion. I have seen several lenses without them, just the glue spot.
