My wild guess is the old Minolta manual-focus mount, but have a look here:

It's Minolta MD. The notch in the bayonet flag and the MD tabs on the aperture ring are giveaways.

You could use it with a glassless adapter for close-ups (makes sense with macro lenses), anything more (mount conversion, etc.) only makes sense with some of the gems in MC/MD-mount (MC58/1.2 and the like).

Indeed a Minolta MD mount.

See my "mini-review" of one of the glassless adapters:

Yes, they revised them some time after I bought the first edition. The one I have is unusable on a full frame camera and will vignette at longer extensions. The amount of vignetting depends also on the focal length of the lens in use. Still at $15-16 dollars I can't complain too much. It is usable. I just haven't felt the urge to spend another $15 to buy the newer model.
