I agree cleaning would be paramount. Also most coating labs would serve the eye glasses industry, so the trays, lens holders, etc. would be set up for 'uncuts', say about 50mm or so diameter. I've thought about this, as I've been to our local lab called Optogenics on an interview once. But this is all academic.
Also, you're going to get a "run-of-the-mill" coating unless you can spec a high quality lens formula, no way comparable to what is applied to most photographic lenses (multi-coatings and a protective layer).

I'm just shy of 200*... which is too many really, I'm considering offloading a fair bit of my collection - Having such a collection is a PITA every time I move house.

I'll pick something else to collect, a studio head I know of collects glass eyes, I also know a photographer who collects amber insects and another who collects fountain pens.

* My original concept wast to collect 365 50mm lenses and shoot with a different fifty every day for a year....however a considerable number the lenses are built for mounts that no longer exist, and no adapter currently exists for them. I realize how impractical the idea is.
Damn!!!!! 200??? I'd like to see someone, own that many 135mm lenses
