What the hell? (eBay Madness)

Someone buys a beat-up Super-Takumar 50/1.4 for $104?!?!
The What the Hell Auction Here ("Outstanding" Pentax Super-Takumar 50mm F1.4 Lens)

Wow, looks like I need to put up two of mine, and they're in better shape...maybe start the bidding at $125?!?!?

Lol...I think his pagelong description helped a bit.

Also, what is this all about: eBay: PENTAX SUPER TAKUMAR 1:1.4 50MM M42 FAST LENS (item 250071355273 end time Jan-18-07 17:31:05 PST)

As far as I know, there's no "outer ring"
Is it a filter?

LOL, that looks like a mangled step-up ring.

Buyer beware!

The glass looks yellowed even to me, I'm really frustrated with what lenses are going for lately, it's a sellers market all right.
might as well buy new.

Perhaps they just mean the front edge of the lens barrel. it is quite thin. And yes thet example is very yellow. lots of sunbaking needed to stop the warming filter effect.
