I'll jump in as well. LOL and I thought i'm cured. Anyway, this same guy has posted several gold-plated lenses in the past like the summicron 35, 50 and Pentax 28. Last time I remember, the 28 ended up pretty high.

Edit: . I just checked his feedback. There was another 50 M ended at 300ish Euro. Good luck guys and gals. Bid war begins.

I'd buy it if I needed that lens.
But one of them is being given to me. It might be un-usable though.

What's the value of gold these days? How much gold do you think is on one of those? I guess the price would seem better after factoring it in...well, besides the cool factor

That's a pretty cool 1.4 lens. Reminds me of the old 50 that showed up shortly after the FA Limiteds hit the states. At that time, only the Japanese could get the black ones, the rest of us got the silver ones. Fellow disassembled his 50, then sand blasted and polished it. Looked every bit as good as those silver Limiteds. He posted pictures over at dpreview several years ago.
