Manufacturer - Super Travenar lens

Apologies if this has been covered in another thread / forum - I have searched for a reference without success.

Does anyone know, or can anyone point me in the right direction, the manufacturer of Super Travenar lenses, please ?

Many thanks

Travenar indeed was a lens name created by Albert Schacht, Ulm. Schacht (or the remainders of if) quit production of lenses some time around 1970.
Therefore any K-mount lens labled Travenar or Super Travenar has nothing to do with this company. I know of approx 20 such lenses, most of the primes are labled "Made in Japan", while the zooms look pretty much like the early Samyangs. Anyway, they are "classic" OEM stuff of the early eighties, coming from the likes of Cosina, etc.

Thank you very much for this - I did wonder if Cosina was likely to be involved.
