mount help (last kick at the can)

It's either TX or T4. These threads may help:

BTW, waste (verb): spend money uselessly. Waist (noun): a part of your body.

the mount, unfortunately you show the lens side not camera side, appears to be a screw mount (M42) for Spotmatic F and ES II because it has an apperture setting linkage (and little gear) for open aperture metering

since I bought the tamron 300 5.6 for 20 dollars, putting another 20 for an adapter still seems like a good gamble.... looks like it is a tamron adaptall for minolta sr-t model camera

thanks for the help everyone

SLR Lens Mount Identification Guide

Should help. Good pictures of most mounts. If you hold it with the red dot straight up, the Minolta should have a notch in the ear of the mount flange that sits to the right of the red dot.
