minolta 58mm 1.2 question

I have this lens that I started to take apart the mount in order to do a conversion and stopped. I put it back together, but this is definitely a lens for conversion. I would give it a 7-8 as there is some crazing on the inside and a hint of fog that doesn't look like fungus to me. My question is what would this be worth?

It's hard to overlook the optical issues you mentioned. Without them, some recent eBay sales suggest $300+. To a Pentax user, the Cosina 55mm f1.2 is going for $250+ now, with no mechanical engineering required. But the vague optical issues sound unfixable and possibly something that will get worse.
