Ooooh, early serial number! I think that means it has lead in the lens that (allegedly) makes the rendering even more amazing than lenses produced after lead was banned. (That's the theory anyway, certainly may not be 100% true). You may also indicate in your ad that this is a Made-in-Japan lens, as it must be to have such an early serial number. Best of luck with the sale; if I didn't already own one, I'd be all over this...
