Oh sure it fits the Ouroboros camera. Just kidding. I have no idea.

Do you have two sections? Is it possible this was the front end of a two section lens?

The clip around the mount looks very much like a E Clip used in engineering to locate something like a bearing on a shaft or a brake cylinder onto the backplate - as in this picture.



So my guess is this has been modified at sometime, and maybe the clip holds the lens in place when it it is mounted on a plate mount? But, the E clip should have a groove to fit in.

Is this how the lens should look?
