Some times you have to wonder what some folks on eBay are smoking...

LOL! :lol:

"Glass on the lens is clear and free of scratches."

This one from 1951(ish) most definitely is coated.

I wound up purchasing 4 copies of this lens from various dates (all of which where stated as ex+ or better by their eBay sellers) before finally finding one that was decent enough to be satisfied with...an unscrupulous bunch one finds on eBay.

Looks like the description is from a different lens - or something weird... It's described as a "Summitar lens Leica M39 mount 5cm/3.5" when it's clearly an f/2.
