On the front of the lens will be "Super-Multi-Coated Takumar." The later versions are "SMC Takumar." The older versions are "Super Takumar."
Assuming you were responding to the question regarding the 28/3.5 the second version was sold as both "Super Takumar" and "S-M-C Takumar". I don't know if there was one labeled "SMC Takumr". The design change happened in the 1966, several years in advance of the SMC technology.

Young kids in the house. I mentioned what was in the lens and the OH gave me the look that said "No, not at any emission level."

Thank you. Any clues to pick them apart on pictures alone? Serial numbers?

I guess you can't take them to the dentist or on an airplane then. Probably can't eat bananas either.

These elements were removed from lenses because of the hazards posed by industrial waste from the manufacturing, not because the lenses themselves are dangerous. Just don't let your kids keep them in their mouths for months on end (eww right?).
