is this a K mount lens?

Looking to buy a lens and the listing isn't specific as to what mount/camera its compatible with. It looks similar to a K mount but has a notch out of one flange (the one on the bottom left). See the attached picture

Thanks for the help!

Nikon is what I'm thinking. Maybe...

Doesn't look K mount though because of where the aperture lever is.

Minolta MD. Note the notch for locking the lens and the tabs on the aperture ring.

Definitely Minolta SR/MD mount. The notch near the end of the flange with the auto-stop down lever opposite are characteristic of the Minolta bayonet.

You guys are awesome, after a quick search with the keyword Minolta, that is exactly what it is. Thanks!
