[SOLD] Pentax-M 50mm/1.7 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax-M 50mm/1.7

Asking Price
$45 (US) (Price drop)

Item Description
I found this gem lurking in a dusty display case in a pawn shop a couple years ago, and it's been resident in my camera bag ever since. It didn't come with any caps, so it will come with generic front and rear caps.

I'm trying to make room in my camera bag (and wallet) for some other gear. Even so, it was a tough choice between selling this lens or my SMC Tak 50mm/1.4, or keeping them both

The optics are perfect as far as I can tell; there's a little dust inside it but nothing that will affect image quality.

The black finish is starting to wear from use on the grippy corners of the aperture ring and in one tiny spot just forward of the focusing ring. Otherwise no cosmetic wear that I can see.

The aperture is snappy, and the blades look nice and clean.

Calculated after buyer's choice

Additional Details
I'm not sure how to state the shipping charge; I'll let the buyer choose the method and carrier out of the 3 listed, then I will get the estimate from their postage calculators.

I don't have a Paypal account (didn't feel safe after they completely messed up some basic technical stuff and gave me the runaround), so unfortunately my only recourse is check/MO.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Kicked the price down by $15, realized I'd overestimated on this one.
