Item Description
I believe this is an early version, with ribbed focus ring and serial starting with 28xxxxxx. Aperture ring works smoothly. Blades have slight marks as pictured, maybe oil or just wear marks? Does not affect blade movement at all. The most noticeable cosmetic blemish is a scuff on ribs of the focusing ring, pictured.

Glass is generally clean and clear, with some exceptions that I just noticed upon close inspection:
--One of the internal elements near the front of the lens has what looks like a bit of separation around the extreme edges. I wasn't able to capture this in any photos. It hasn't affected image quality from what I can tell, being at the very edge of the glass.
--There are also some tiny internal spots across the surface of an element that look a bit like a coating flaw. They almost look like spots of pollen on a car windshield. Again, tough to photograph, and I've only noticed them now when closely inspecting the lens to sell.
--Some minor internal dust

I consider the flaws to be very minor, but I'll conservatively rate the lens in fair to poor condition. If you see the lens in person I think you'll agree that's being picky. No filter, no front cap but includes m42 rear cap.
