Little help? help me identify possible problem and lens mount.

I took a chance on a good deal on ebay, and it turns out the lens is the wrong mount.

It's a 28mm f2.5 Vivitar made by Kiron, which would have been awesome if it was a K mount. The seller didn't know anything about it. I took a chance.

Now I will re sell it.

But, could you guys help me identify the mount?

Edit- figured out my aperture issue and all is well.

That's a Canon FD mount lens.

New FD, to be more precise. It's a bayonet mount, not breech-lock.
