I figured out my one odd setup. It so happens that a while back I bought a nice vintage Tiffen wideangle shade. It was part of a Series 7 system and it came with the Asahi adapter instead of the Tiffen one. The top ring is a tiffen. I also now think the glass is 1a because when I shine a light through it over white paper, there is a subtle color. Apparently the rings are just stuck. I never reallized the Tiffen Series & stuff was compatible with this old Asahi series.

Edit: I'm glad I saw this thread in the Pentax film slr forum before it got moved. I usually don't look in here for Spottie and pre-Spottie stuff.
