For auction is the rather rare first version of the Yashinon Aux telephoto lens for Yashica TLR cameras. Both the taking and viewing lens are in the original elliptical case, with three original caps, missing only 1 rear cap. The viewing lens has the serial number: 4260, and the taking lens: 4509,
Cosmetically, it’s all very nice. The case has some wear, but otherwise the leather is in very good condition with no tears or other damage. The lining is also okay. The lenses have no dents or paint loss of any kind. There is a musty smell on the lenses which will need to be aired out.
The glass of the lenses is also scratch free and very nice, however there is thin fungus on the insides. The viewing lens is worse, with more visible fungus on the inside. The taking lens is rather clear, but again with thin fungus on the perimeter and a small bit in the center. The taking lens also has some coating loss on the back side. Both lenses are still very bright and clear to look through, no problems are visible when you look through them, the taking lens is shown in front of a book page in the item photos.
Please look at all photos of the lenses. Again, they are clear to look through and probably to use, but due to the fungus and coating issues, sold as-is for spares, repair, or display, priced accordingly. Please feel free to ask for more photos.
