Here is a mystery lens, of which there is no record anywhere. The lens says Series VI. There is no mention of any Wollensak lens past Series V. The lens is old, probably from the 1940s. Also probably a lens for scientific or military use. It may be the precursor to the Wollensak Oscillo-Anastigmat. In any case a fun lens with very lovely bokeh.

Wow, surprisingly good.

A couple of questions -- what's the mount? C-mount? And is it coated?

The lens has no mount. It is mounted in an old Alphax shutter. Uncoated. Probably 12 blafs or so--I will count when I am home, but blades mean nothing to me since I always shoot wide open.
