Probably an enlarger lens (?), this lens is a real beauty and above that a great performer, sharp wide open and extremely sharp when stop down a little bit, nice colours rendition and almost no CA, it's simply my favorite enlarger lens to use on bellows!
Here some samples with my D700 (all wide open, handheld and natural light except last one #5 @ f/8 with flash...)

Very nice results indeed and lens is beautiful looking thing.

I don't think it is an enlarger lens, the aperture numbers would be the other way up.

I suspect this was for a large format camera with a focal plane shutter.
