Lens identification help needed

Am I correct in assuming that this is version 1 of the Super-Takumar 135mm 3.5? As you can see, two of the three markers are present..... the serial number & existence of the f:4 aperture marker puts it in the correct era, but for some reason there is no model number on the underside of the auto/manual switch, which would be the definitive marker.

It's indeed the first version of the Super-Takumar with 5 elements in 4 groups (mine is slightly less old with a serial number of 1316191, but it does have the same rounded engravings and the f/4 on the diaphragm ring). Version 2 has less elements (4/4).
