Hi Kev,

if it's Steinheil then it should be OK. These are oldies but goodies so you can expect decent coating but not SMC which translates to more flare in harsh conditions and more subdued colors out of the camera.

You might ask about any signs of fogged up lens surfaces, which would be seen when looking through the lens with a strong light source on the other end.
Might ask about smooth focus and aperture actuation also.

10 people bidding on this lens & went for $266 Aus. This is 2-3 times the equivalent SMC Takumar 135 lens. They obviously think it is special.
